FoundationOne® offers comprehensive genomic profiling

Our approach

Our approach is designed to improve operation efficiency when compared with multiple, narrower tests1

The Roche Foundation Medicine platform leverages NGS technology to examine regions of the tumour genome, which common diagnostic techniques such as PCR/IHC/FISH, and multigene hotspot NGS tests may miss.2–11 CGP detects the four main classes of genomic alterations – base substitutions, insertions or deletions, copy number alterations and gene rearrangements – in a comprehensive set of over 300 cancer‑relevant genes, and reports TMB and MSI.*2,6,7,12,13–16

How is CGP different to existing diagnostic tests?

Multigene hotspot NGS tests

Multigene hotspot tests risk missing genomic alterations while comprehensive genomic profiling broadly analyses the genome to identify all relevant alterations

Clear in-depth reports

The FoundationOne® report provides clear, detailed information to support treatment decision-making†17

Our clear, detailed report supports clinical decision-making by providing insights into the patient’s genomic profile and using these to inform the use of immunotherapies, identify alternative therapy options and identify trial opportunities. The FoundationOne® CDx report may also highlight important disease-relevant genes that have no alterations but are particularly relevant for the specific tumour type,17 and identify European Medicines Agency (EMA)‑validated therapies,17† which have been assessed and authorised before being made available to patients.18

Validation

Quality and validation of evidence with FoundationOne® CDx aims to provide service confidence

FoundationOne® CDx has been approved as a companion diagnostic by the FDA for 17 different therapies, as well as featuring in over 250 publications in peer-reviewed journals.19,20 This level of validation should provide confidence that the information you are acting upon is well-informed, accurate and reliable.

 

All services are analytically and clinically validated

All testing procedures should be validated prior to being introduced into routine clinical care. Analytical validation is the ability to detect and measure the presence of a specific biomarker of interest with high sensitivity, accuracy and robustness.21–23 Clinical validation is the ability to divide one population into two or more groups on the basis of outcomes, such as treatment response.21–23
