Thermo Fisher Scientific announced the launch of its Ion Torrent Genexus System, the first fully integrated, next-generation sequencing (NGS) platform featuring an automated specimen-to-report workflow that delivers results economically in a single day. Launched at the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) 2019 annual meeting, this turnkey solution redefines the genomic profiling paradigm and enables a future in which local hospitals can adopt NGS testing. The company also introduced its Oncomine Precision Assay , an innovative pan-cancer panel for the Genexus platform. It enables comprehensive genomic profiling from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue and liquid biopsy samples with a single assay. .

Thermo Fisher plans to seek FDA approval of the Genexus System to accelerate future development of a broad menu of diagnostic assays in oncology and other clinical applications.
