Oseq™ Solid Tumor Panels

Oseq™ Solid Tumor Panels

Service Description

Human cancers typically carry several types of genomic variations, such as Single Nucleotide Variants (SNV), Copy Number Variations (CNV), Insertions and Deletions (InDels), Structural Variants (SV), and Gene Fusions. These genetic alterations infer important insights for the discovery and development of biomarkers and for use in basic cancer research, patient stratification and clinical research.

BGI has developed multiple comprehensive and specific cancer panels based on many years of cancer research experience and proprietary database generation. These NGS panels are all capture-based, designed to detect all types of genomic tumor alterations, including base substitutions, insertions and deletions, copy number alterations, and selected gene fusions.

For example, our most comprehensive OseqTM Solid Cancer Panel includes 1,053 genes that are strongly supported as clinically actionable cancer genes, with high frequency alterations in the COSMIC database, or play key roles in core cancer pathways.


OseqTM Solid Tumor Panels

Multiple OseqTM panels are available for solid tumor research. The OseqTM T for tissue biopsy and OseqTM ctDNA, and OseqTM lung panels are approved clinical test in China. All the panels are for Research use only outside of China.

OseqTM panels are designed for the identification of clinically actionable mutations, as well as discovery of novel variants with important functions, including, but not limited to Lung Cancer, Colorectal Cancer, Breast Cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Melanoma, and Lymphoma.
