In cancer, every cell has its own pattern of active genes and proteins, making for a highly complex disease.
As such, the evaluation of tumor heterogeneity and similarities within a tumor and across different cancer types is essential for the design of effectively stratified treatments – and thus additionally for the discovery of new therapeutic agents. In order to achieve a better diagnosis and staging of cancer on an individual basis, molecular tumor profiling for different biomarkers of a tissue sample is crucial.
To this end, Indivumed offers a variety of highly sensitive technologies for tumor profiling, including both genomic and proteomic analysis. Small amounts of tissue, which reflect the size of needle biopsies, can be processed in a standardized manner for different applications. The close interaction of different departments and their capabilities – including tissue handling, pathological analysis, proteomics, and genomics – together with the world’s highest quality biobank ensure maximum efficiency and quality. All processes run under ISO 9001:2008 and according to GCLP guidelines.
The tumor-profiling portfolio includes:
- (Phospho) Protein Profiling
- Laser Capture Microdissection
- Mutation Analysis
- Gene Expression Analysis
