Oncomine Comprehensive assays, based on Ion Ampliseq technology and enabled by the Ion Torrent sequencing platforms, provide:

  • Relevant content based on evidence from Oncomine Knowledgebase, a proprietary genomic database curated over a decade and cited thousands of times for oncology research, and from collaboration with leading oncology research institutions and pharma companies
  • Multiple biomarker type analysis including hotspot SNVs, indels, CNVs, and gene fusions across a range of cancer types
  • Proven and reliable performance with high specificity, sensitivity, and reproducibility across different research laboratories, enabled by the robust design and enhanced manufacturing quality of reagents in our ISO13485-compliant facility, including enhanced QC
  • Robust results from even those challenging FFPE tissue samples, including FNAs, with sample input as low as 10 ngs of DNA and RNA
  • Efficient workflow on Ion Chef System plus Ion GeneStudio S5 or Ion Torrent Genexus system with high multiplexing flexibility and fast time to results
  • Enhanced bioinformatics and reporting solutions developed for the Ion Torrent platforms and optimized Oncomine assays, including Oncomine Reporter, enabling contextual investigation of sample-specific variants to understand their relevance in the latest oncology research
