Cancer Genomic Screening Program LC-SCRUM-Asia Adopts Latest Thermo Fisher Scientific NGS Solutions

Program will leverage Ion Torrent Genexus System* and Oncomine Precision Assay* to advance precision medicine for lung cancer in Asia

CARLSBAD, Calif., Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — LC-SCRUM-Asia, a leading cancer genomic screening program, has selected Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Ion Torrent Genexus System* and Oncomine Precision Assay*, a pan-cancer panel, to advance precision medicine in Asia. The next-generation sequencing (NGS) solutions will be used in two prospective, observational projects to support the development of future therapeutics and diagnostics for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

The Lung Cancer Genomic Screening Project for Individualized Medicine in Asia aims to overcome challenges in establishing precision medicine for patients with NSCLC through large-scale genetic screening and monitoring. The Lung Cancer Genomic Screening Project for Individualized Medicine – Molecular Testing for Resistant Tumors to Systemic Therapy (LC-SCRUM-TRY), newly launched on September 28, is designed to examine drug resistance in NSCLC.
