InView™ 1-Week Exome Diagnostic for the detection of cancerous cells or other genetic diseases.

GATC Biotech has designed InView™ 1-Week Exome Diagnostic especially for diagnostic purposes. This service enables early detection of multiple genetic variants presumably responsible for diverse genetic disease markers within just 7 days, the world’s fastest turn-around time available.

With its DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 certified Next Gen Sequencing laboratories, GATC Biotech offers this application e.g. for detection of cancerous cells or early detection of other genetic diseases.

The application supports clinicians to initiate urgent treatments and opens the way to a more personalized patient care in the field of cancer, metabolic dysfunctions and immunological diseases.

With a combination of standardized workflows and highest quality standards, InView™ 1-Week Exome Diagnostic is an overall solution for fast and reliable variant detection.

Focusing on the functional relevant coding regions, only approx. 1% of the human genome (the exome) needs to be sequenced. This provides an efficient advantage for diagnostics and clinical research.

“Next Generation Sequencing technologies have set a new level in the field of clinical research and diagnostics. 1-Week Exome Diagnostic is an all-in-one service delivering rapid results for early detection of diseases for our customers in diagnostics, clinical and pharmaceutical research”, tells Dr. Marcus Benz, COO at GATC Biotech.

Dr. Benz continued, “Being the leading service provider for NGS solutions, scientists can profit from our thorough experience in exome analysis while receiving accurate results in only 7 days.”

Essential requirements for the competence of analysis and calibration laboratories such as DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 and DIN EN ISO 9001 by the national accreditation body for the Federal Republic of Germany (DAkkS) have been fulfilled by GATC Biotech’s NGS laboratories.

The application is based on Agilent SureSelectXT Human All Exon V5 enrichment and Illumina MiSeq.
