Case Study: Development and Validation of a Cancer Hotspot Assay

GenomeWebinar

Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center 

This webinar is the second in a four-part series highlighting real-world examples of how some lab directors are bringing validated next-generation sequencing-based tests to the clinic.

If you are a clinical laboratory that is currently running or about to begin offering NGS-based clinical genomics testing and want to know how other labs have addressed specific validation and daily implementation challenges, this webinar series is for you!

Labs looking to implement NGS diagnostics face a number of regulatory challenges. These tests currently fall under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment guidelines as laboratory developed tests and lack specific validation guidelines and global performance standards. Moreover, these assays feature complex workflows comprised of hardware, wetware, and software from multiple vendors assembled — far different from more standardized approaches that fall under the Food and Drug Administration's guidelines for in vitro diagnostics.

In this webinar, Gregory J. Tsongalis of Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center discusses how his lab developed and validated a cancer hotspot assay.
