Decision Support

Our Decision Support services are designed to present patient results in the clearest way possible and to provide the information you need to take action in establishing treatment plans. Ranging from interpretation of results on each report to expert consultations and ongoing education, these services can help you make the most of comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP) in your practice.

Streamlined Reports

Simplified test results provide information about genomic findings and biomarkers and their associated targeted therapies when available.
