Overcoming Challenges in Solid Tumor Testing with Advanced AI

Genome Webinar

Molecular Biologist, Dijon University Hospital

Clinical Application Product Manager
Sophia Genetics

With the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), genomes sequencing has been democratized over the last decades with the detection of genomic alterations, thus replacing Sanger sequencing.

This webinar will discuss the different steps taken by the CHU de Dijon to move from a non-NGS lab to an experienced NGS lab and how Sophia Genetics has successfully accompanied the lab to use different diagnostic molecular applications to address their clinical needs in a short turnaround time using Sophia artificial intelligence (AI) from Sophia Genetics.

In the first part of the webinar, Dr. Caroline Chapusot will cover the set-up program used to implement the Solid Tumor Solution by Sophia Genetics in the lab and the advantages of this solution over previous lab’s tests.

Then, Dr. Chapusot will discuss two specific clinical cases addressed using STS and Sophia DDM platform for the analysis and the interpretation of the data.

Finally, Dr. Chapusot will discuss the vision of the CHU de Dijon over the NGS applications used for clinical and research purposes and their impact on the reimbursement system.

In the last part of the webinar, Dr. Shirine Benhenda of Sophia Genetics will briefly introduce a solution that will soon be launched to detect gene fusions, beside SNVs, Indels, MSI and gene amplifications in FFPE samples from various solid tumors.

The Solid Tumor Solution by Sophia Genetics is a molecular application that bundles a capture-based target enrichment kit with the analytical power of Sophia AI with and full access to Sophia DDM platform. The application is designed to accurately characterize the complex mutational landscape of solid cancers associated with lung, colorectal, skin and brain cancers using FFPE samples.
