Lucence presents data at 2022 world conference on lung cancer (WCLC) supporting utility of amplicon-based liquid biopsy (Lucence Press Release)
"Lucence will present new data at the upcoming IASLC 2022 World Conference on Lung Cancer on August 6-9, 2022, highlighting novel applications of its ultrasensitive amplicon-based next generation sequencing technology in the detection and treatment of lungLucence recently announced the publication of a validation study for its flagship LiquidHALLMARK ctDNA Liquid Biopsy Assay. The study, published in PLOS ONE, establishes LiquidHALLMARK’s performance and identifies actionable biomarkers in 70% of lung cancer patients. In addition to showing high sensitivity of both LiquidHALLMARK and Lucence’s AmpliMark amplicon next-generation sequencing (NGS) platform, external validation with cobas® EGFR Mutation Test v2 for lung cancer specimens demonstrated an overall concordance of 84.00% with a 100% concordance rate for EGFR variants above 0.4% VAF. cancer."
