Life Technologies Consortium to Create New Frontline Diagnostic Utilising DNA Sequencing for Cancer Patients in the U.K.
Date:6/22/2011

r treatment and cancer clinical trials," said Peach, "in which patients are quickly moved into appropriate trials based on their individual genetics. And, because almost all drug trials are delayed due to lags in enrollment, UK research will benefit from this model as well."

The 150 genes in the Oxford study will be selected with input from pharmaceutical companies, as genes of interest for potential new drug targets or markers for efficacy of existing drugs or those under development.

Fast and economical Personal Genome Machines will enable affordable price point for nine gene report

The consortium will create and validate the new NGS-based test on the Ion Torrent™ Personal Genome Machine™ (PGM), a next generation sequencing platform that can sequence hundreds of genes in just two hours. The semi-conductor based PGM was selected for its ease of use, speed, accuracy, and economic pricing. The new test will include a report on nine known genetic markers at a price that is affordable within the National Health Service.

"Rapid, cost-effective sequencing is taking us into a new genomic knowledge economy," said Paul Billings, M.D., Ph.D., chief medical officer of Life Technologies. "We are approaching an entirely new way to address, diagnose and treat cancer. In the near future, we see DNA sequencing as a routine part of patient care, generating a new kind of valuable information as a decision resource to physicians."

Life Technologies has a strong presence in the U.K., with over 700 employees in research & development, manufacturing, and commercial operations; its European headquarters is in Paisley, Scotland.
