NGeneBio (Seoul, Korea) showcased its next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based oncology/genetic diseases kits and NGenePlex nCoV qRT-PCR kit against COVID-19 at AACC 2021.

Dedicated to achieving better health through laboratory medicine, the American Association for Clinical Chemistry, AACC, brings together more than 50,000 clinical laboratory professionals, physicians, research scientists, and business leaders from around the world focused on clinical chemistry, molecular diagnostics, mass spectrometry, translational medicine, lab management, and other areas of breaking laboratory science.

At AACC 2021, NGeneBio showcased its NGS-based oncology/genetic diseases kits (BRCA/HEME/SOLID/ONCO/HLA). NGeneBio’s BRCAaccuTest and BRCAaccuTest PLUS are a reagent kit for producing libraries for analyzing the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes using the NGS method, which analyzes genomic DNA derived from blood or FFPE tissue. The kit is intended for breast and ovarian cancer patients, HBOC (Hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome) patients, and for family history or the age of breast cancer incidence.

Also on display at the event were NGeneBio’s HEMEaccuTest for molecular genetic test of multiple genes related hematologic malignancy; SOLIDaccuTest to explorer variants associated with solid tumors using a comprehensive method of NGS; HLAaccuTest All which is an in vitro diagnostic medical device for HLA (human leukocyte antigen) typing that can identify high-resolution histocompatibility antigens using NGS; and ONCOaccuPanel, a comprehensive solid tumor oncology NGS test.

In addition, NGeneBio demonstrated its NGeneAnalySys software for analysis of the genetic testing data produced by NGS and helps to report in clinical-grade for oncology test, alongside the EasyHLAanalyzer which provides the HLA typing identifying human leukocyte antigen for histocompatibility antigens using data from NGS. Also on display at AACC 2021 was NGeneBio’s NGenePlex nCoV qRT-PCR Kit which is a reagent of real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay intended for the qualitatively detecting nucleic acid of SARS-CoV-2 from patients infected or suspected of COVID-19.
