OmniSeq, Labcorp launch new oncology test

By LabPulse.com staff writers

June 14, 2021 -- OmniSeq and Labcorp have launched OmniSeq Insight, a new test based on next-generation sequencing that's intended to help improve oncology treatment and outcomes.

OmniSeq Insight is a solid tumor test that combines genomic and immune profiling with immune gene expression data, according to the firm. Users receive test results in a report that includes a summary of U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved therapies that match the tumor profile; they also receive recommendations for treatment based on information from a proprietary database that includes National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines.

OmniSeq is offering the test in the U.S. through Labcorp and in Canada through Dynacare, a Labcorp subsidiary, it said.
