Sample Diversification Exploration in Molecular Diagnostics beyond FFPE Samples

Sample Diversification Exploration in Molecular Diagnostics beyond FFPE Samples

05 May, 2023 5:00 pm-8:00 pm (GMT+8)

Whilst the utility of FFPE samples for multi-gene NSCLC diagnosis is considered the norm now, there are situations where FFPE samples are not available for late-stage lung cancer or not yet available such as during early-stage lung cancer diagnosis. Hence, there is a need to diversify the sample types to perform multi-gene diagnosis and plasma, pleural effusions, sputum have been identified as promising alternatives.

Join us for this educational webinar with Dr Ziming Li and Dr Daphne Chua-Ang as they share their perspectives on using pleural effusion and sputum samples for multigene biomarker analysis for lung cancer.

What will you learn?

•  Current challenges of using cytology samples in clinical utilities
•  The analytical performance evaluation of applying plasma/pleural effusions samples
•  The concordance of the mutation detected by AmoyDx PLC panel compared with mutation obtained from NGS method in lung cancer
