prime DX® Liquid

The new prime DX® Liquid test also consists of a panel of 1021 genes, which analyses immunotherapy biomarkers TMB, MSI, HLA, allowing the treating physician to plan an effective treatment for the patient, including immunotherapy, chemotherapy, PARP inhibitors and compatibility of participation in clinical trials.

In addition,

prime DX® Liquid, analyses genes involved in genetic predisposition to cancer, thus providing information to the physician about the likelihood of an inherited cancer syndrome.

Recommended for the following cases:
  • When there is not enough tissue or recent biopsy
  • When the quality of the tissue is poor
  • When there is a metastatic and multifocal disease
  • After treatment to check patient’s response
  • When the patient relapses and there is a need to analyze the molecular profile with no biopsy available

RESULTS REPORT

The results of the prime DX® Liquid analysis include a detailed explanation of all findings, including the following information.
  • Molecular profiling of the tumor tissue with details on specific gene mutations and interactive access to information related to the specific gene

  • Suggested approved therapies that can be of great benefit to the specific patient with interactive access to clinical studies.

  • Suggested approved therapies that can be of great benefit to the specific patient with interactive access to clinical studies.

  • Suggested investigational therapies with interactive access to clinical studies.

  • Treatments with associated resistance that will not be of benefit to the specific patient.

  • Medication suggestions with documented indications.

Technical characteristics of the prime DX® Liquid test

The new prime DX® test is based on advanced molecular technology using hybridization capture NGS with UMIs. The test uses the Oncology Multi-Gene Variant Assay (GenePlus), which is a qualitative in vitro diagnostic test (CE-IVD) that detects variants in 1021 tumour-related genes and gene rearrangements/mergers in 38 genes.

It analyses biomarkers for response to immunotherapy, including HLA detection and biomarkers for response to chemotherapy.

The MGI-DNBSEQ-G400 is a CE-IVD platform that enables simultaneous processing of multiple samples with high sensitivity and specificity, producing faster, reliable results at a lower cost

Frequently Asked Questions Physicians

Which patients are eligible for the test?

All patients with a solid tumour when there is insufficient tissue or recent biopsy are suitable.

 

How long does it take to get my results?

 

15 business days

 

What kind of sample and how much is required for the test?

 

For the prime DX Liquid analysis we need blood in special vials that you will receive from Genekor. (Cell-Free DNA BCT®(10ml) και Cell-Free RNA BCT®(10ml)).

Why is it necessary to analyse so many genes?

  • Quantity and quality of information
  • Reduced time
  • Reduced costs

As more and more targeted therapies target gene changes that are detected in a small number of patients, a multi-gene panel results in the production of a large volume of multi-level valuable information, greatly increasing the likelihood of finding a personalized treatment plan for the patient.

It has also been shown that the more genes analysed, the more reliable the results for TMB.
