Technology Highlights

  • Tempus’ multiomic molecular profiling offerings include the following tests: tumor/normal match (or tumor only) sequencing, WES (150x coverage), Targeted DNA panel (1,714 genes**, 400x coverage), Whole transcriptome (50M reads), as well as H&E and IHC (including PD-1 and PD-L1)
  • Strong analytical capabilities, including core analytics, cloud storage and clinical analytics (e.g., identification of trends in outcomes based on tumor molecular profiles)
