Helen Fernandes at Columbia University uses Pillar NGS panel as new tumor sequencing workhorse

Meet SLIMamp: Columbia University’s new tumor sequencing workhorse

Next generation sequencing (NGS) is a powerful diagnostic tool for identifying tumor variants. Tumor sequencing workflows often rely on off-the-shelf panels, which allow for multiplexed amplification of known cancer mutational “hotspots”. These panels are diagnostically useful, but they can’t keep pace with the cancer research community’s diligent uncovering of new, previously unknown hotspots, genes, and …
