RNA is the biomarker of choice for a number of large commercial and reimbursed diagnostic products from e.g. Genomic Health and CardioDx. However using RNA-seq in the clinic remains challenging from a cost, time to answer and data handling perspective.  Genomic Expression’s “bait free” target filtering sample prep method solves most of the problems. The technology is platform-agnostic and can be applied with any sequencing platform reducing cost/sample a factor of 10 and providing an answer in less than 1 week and an out-put file of less of 30 MB. Genomic Expression is leveraging its technology and access to samples in a single payer system that implemented electronic medical records a decade ago, to provide a superior platform for development of Next Generation Diagnostics together with selected partners.
