We offer extensive cancer genomic testing specific to solid tumours and haematological malignancies.
What is cancer genomic testing?
In the new Genomic Medicine Service many more people with cancer are now being offered genomic testing as increasingly treatment can be personalised depending on the genomic changes seen in the tumour. The NHS National Genomic Test Directory for solid tumours and haematological malignancies specifies which genomic tests are commissioned by the NHS in England, the technology by which they are available, and the patients who will be eligible to access to a test, details of which can be found here NHSETestDirectory.
We provide a comprehensive testing repertoire to support the diagnosis and prognosis of haematological malignancies, for full test repertoire click here.
We have NGS panels that cover the following tumour sites:
Head & Neck
Lung / Mesothelioma
Skin / Melanoma
Tests ordered off the directory will be run on an appropriate UKAS accredited (ISO 15189:2012) Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) or Fluorescence In Situ Hybridisation (FISH) gene panels, and results specific to that test will be reported and evaluated for clinical significance by our experienced HCPC registered Clinical Scientists.
