Molecular Tumor Profiling

(Foundation One Service, Next-Generation Sequencing)

FoundationOne® provides a comprehensive molecular tumour profile for solid tumors which can support doctors in their decisions regarding the treatment of cancer patients by detecting genetic changes associated with cancer.
• Validated NGS-based analysis of the four main classes of genomic alterations.1
• Complete Sequencing of the exons of 315 genes and additional introns from 28 selected genes. (FoundationOne® Gene List)
• Measurement of the TMB und MSI-Status is included in the analysis.2

Comprehensive approach gives relieable results
• FoundationOne® recognizes all genetic alterations – base substitutions, insertions/deletions, copy number variations and gene rekombinations (fusions).
• FoundationOne® is a comprehensive tumor profiling, which is based on a largevalidation study. The study was published in a leading scientific journal.1

Saves tissue and time
• FoundationOne® needs only a small amount of tissue, including routine biopsies and fine needle aspirates.
• The test works optimal with a tumor content of 30%, the minimum is 20%.

Applicable results summarized in a report
• All determined clinical relevant genetic alterations will be analyzed on basis of the current scientific knowledge and clinical data with personalized therapies and clinical trial data.
• more than 20 bioinformaticians and biomedical scientists curate the FoundationOne® report according to the latest available information.
