Hereditary Cancer Panel (HCP) is a hereditary cancer assay that analyzes known and emerging tumor biomarkers for 17 cancer types. It has enabled BRCA testing for the first nationwide germline BRCA mutation prevalence study in Chinese ovarian cancer patients and multiple Poly ADP-Ribose Polymerase inhibitor (PARPi) Phase III global clinical studies.

Hereditary Cancer Panel is cleared as a clinical test in China and is pending IVD approval through the China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA).
The Hereditary Cancer Panel is available as a clinically-validated Laboratory Developed Test (LDT) from BGI’s CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited service laboratory in Hong Kong.
Several data reporting options are available to tailor the Hereditary Cancer panel report to your specific needs. Contact your BGI representative for a full, current gene list.
