The GO Clinical WorkbenchTM is selected to launch a series of next generation sequencing (NGS)-based assays.

GenomOncology announced today that CompanionDxTM has selected the company’s GO Clinical WorkbenchTM to launch a series of next generation sequencing (NGS)-based assays related to cancer. CompanionDxTM will leverage GenomOncology’s GO Clinical Workbench to manage the entire workflow: from raw sequencing data through delivery of an actionable clinical report to the client.

CompanionDx™ is a provider of both personalized pharmacogenomics evaluations and cancer companion diagnostic testing. When used separately or in conjunction, these two types of tests give physicians the resources necessary to develop comprehensive patient treatment profiles, thereby creating more certainty in therapeutic decisions.

David Lasecki, President of CompanionDxTM, commented “As we develop new tests that leverage next generation sequencing, we require a solution that meets our current needs but is scalable over time. GenomOncology’s platform and services will allow us to efficiently add new cancer panels and expand our testing options to best serve our clients.”

The GO Clinical Workbench provides the laboratory with a fully traceable analysis workflow and rules-based decision support tool for the clinical interpretation of somatic mutations.  

“Providing the oncologist with actionable data that is specific to a patient’s tumor in days instead of weeks adds to the medical utility of next generation sequencing,” added Manuel Glynias, President and CEO of GenomOncology. “The convergence of discovery, technology, and therapeutic development has created an unparalleled opportunity to improve clinical outcomes for many patients with cancer.”
