Prosigna Assay

This is an assay that assesses the risk of distant recurrence of disease in patients with breast cancer. It utilizes a qualitative gene expression data, weighted together with clinical variables to generate a risk category and numerical score called Risk Of Recurrence (ROR). This score is used to assess a patient’s risk of distant recurrence of disease. This assay is performed on breast tumor tissues previously diagnosed as invasive breast carcinoma and are fixed in formalin and embedded in paraffin.

Exome Sequencing

CES is a test that examines the portion of the genome that encodes for proteins (exons) and their flanking splice junctions. CES aims to identify disease-causing variants within the exons. CES interprets the identified variants within the context of the clinical presentation in order to reach a diagnosis for patients with challenging undiagnosed genetic disorders.
