The Universal Fusion/Expression Profile is a clinically-powerful next-gen sequencing based profile that is capable of detecting different classes of genomic abnormalities such as fusion transcripts and gene expression levels in 1,385 genes with implications in solid tumors, soft tissue cancers and hematological diseases. This test covers chromosomal translocations that are not currently covered by FISH and cases where a specific molecular translocation test is not available. The Universal Fusion/Expression Profile sequences all exonic regions of the 1,385 cancer genes included as part of this profile and has been validated on bone marrow, peripheral blood, FFPE and fresh tissue.
Standard sequencing methodologies are limited in their ability to detect gene fusions or analyze gene expression. However, with an RNA sequencing assay such as the Universal Fusion/Expression Profile, it is possible to achieve broader coverage across a large number of cancer-related genes while offering some advantages over standard array-based technologies such as the ability to detect RNA expressed at low levels. Additionally, this test can identify known and novel fusions without prior knowledge of the fusion gene partners. This panel provides physicians and scientists with a clinically-powerful tool that can be used to assess a variety of cancers and aid in diagnosis, prognosis and therapy selection.
