The Ion Torrent Oncomine Childhood Cancer Research Assay is a unique, next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based tool designed for comprehensive genomic profiling of cancers affecting children and young adults.
The content of the Oncomine Childhood Research Assay has been developed with leading scientists and pediatric oncologists. It includes a large 97-gene translocation/fusion panel (>1700 fusion isophorme variants), as fusions are relatively more common in childhood sarcomas and leukemias, but also an 82-DNA target panel with comprehensive coverage of all relevant mutations, 44 targets with full exon coverage, specifically tumor suppressor genes, and 24 CNV targets.
Unique content for comprehensive coverage:
Compiled by leading researchers and pediatric oncologists
203 unique genes including thousands of fusion drivers (and comprehensive mutation coverage)
Optimised workflow for fast results:
End-to-end solution including informatics
2–3 days, depending on sample type
Compatible with different sample types enabled including blood, bone marrow, and FFPE tissue
