Enabling tomorrow's oncology breakthroughs today

Research into cancer genomics is advancing our understanding of cancer development and progression, including the identification of cancer driver events.

To discover the breakthrough, you must be ready to handle the most urgent challenges:

  • Uncovering cryptic tumor heterogeneity
  • Extracting data from limited or challenging samples, such as formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue or cell-free DNA (cfDNA) samples
  • Analyzing and extracting key insights from vast amounts of data generated by multiple technologies
  • Choosing the right technology for each stage of biomarker discovery and verification.

Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a variety of cancer genomics research solutions for comprehensive sample profiling, biomarker discovery and verification, and data analysis.
