LeukoVantage: A Quest/Qiagen Partnership Providing Clinical Insights Into Myeloid Malignancies

Date: 11/12/2019 Duration: 01:00:00 Presented by: Sheryl K. Elkin, PhD and Frederick K. Racke, MD, PhD

The integration of next-generation sequencing (NGS) into the diagnostic process for hematologic malignancies has greatly improved the accuracy and speed of confirming or refining the diagnosis and following minimal residual disease. Optimization of gene selection and assay development, together with skilled interpretation, are key factors in the execution of a clinically relevant NGS test for hematologic malignancies.

In this webinar, we will describe Quest’s LeukoVantage assay, an NGS test designed specifically for detecting clinically relevant variants in myeloid malignancies, and its partnership with N-of-One, a QIAGEN company, for expert interpretation. LeukoVantage covers the most important genes for myeloid diagnostics, with focused panels that allow rapid turnaround. N-of-One’s team of experienced PhDs provides expert, evidence-based annotation incorporating WHO, NCCN, and ELN guidelines, with clinically relevant information vetted by oncologists. N-of-One reports include diagnostic and prognostic information, therapeutic options, and clinical trials based on the unique combination of genomic alterations detected in each case. These reports are then reviewed, modified, and signed out by Quest pathologists.
