The term Next Generation Sequencing refers to a range of technologies that allow large genomes or defined targets to be sequenced in a time frame ranging from a few days to weeks.

Panels for the study of multiple gene mutations of interest and related running tools.

Thanks to the technique of DNA sequencing, which allows us to determine the order of the nitrogenous bases, we are able to "read" the genetic code. Knowledge of the exact order of the nucleotide sequences of a DNA molecule has many applications, for example, it is indispensable for basic biological research and in a variety of application fields such as diagnostics, biotechnology, forensic science, and personalized medicine. NGS, unlike traditional Generation I methods in which only one fragment caǹ be sequenced at a time, allows the process to be extended to many fragments at once, which are sequenced in parallel and rapidly. For this reason it is also called high-throughput sequencing.

BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are responsible for regulating DNA repair mechanisms, and if mutated, they can lose their controlling function and be responsible for the subject's hereditary predisposition to the development of detemined types of cancer.
Their contribution is particularly relevant in cancers such as breast, ovary, prostate, and pancreas that benefit from PARPi therapies.
These genes play a key role in the HRR homologous recombination pathway.
Coverage of all coding exons, exon/intron splice regions, some introns and large rearrangements (LRs), of BRCA1/2 genes.

BRCA1and2 play a key role in the HRR Homologous Recombinant Repair pathway. Mutation of these genes increases the risk of developing breast, ovarian, pancreatic, and prostate cancer. These patients can benefit from

Alteration analysis related to genes involved in the repair mechanism of homologous recombination-a process that allows the damaged strand to abruptly divert copying to the completely healthy strand and, thus, to derive missing or altered information from it.

A fundamental mechanism for cell stability.

Analysis of genes involved in the homologous recombination pathway is of fundamental importance for cancers such as ovarian, breast, pancreatic, and prostate and for setting up PARPi therapy.
AmoyDX HANDLE HRR allows 27 targets to be analyzed simultaneously, including 20 HRR genes, and to detect 26 mutations related to chemotherapeutics.

Detection of genes involved in the homologous recombination pathway


The homologous recombination repair (HRR) pathway plays an important role in double-strand breakage, which is the main cause of cancer development.
It has been shown that loss of function of HRR genes (e.g., BRCA1, BRCA2, PALB2) and Homologous Recombination Deficiency (HRD) will cause a higher risk of developing cancer, and Patients with HRR gene mutations have shown a greater response to Parpi therapies

HRD Focus


Serous ovarian carcinoma (HGSOC) and sensitivity to platinum-containing chemotherapeutic drugs.
Chromosomal instability results in a deficiency of the homologous recombination repair pathway. This deficit is defined by a score obtained from in-depth analysis of several targets scattered throughout the genome.
The definition of this score plays a key role in the drug therapy of BRCA 1- and 2-negative subjects.
In addition to serous ovarian carcinoma, HRD plays a very important role in cancers such as breast, pancreas, and prostate, and its study has paved the way for new therapies for these patients.
AmoyDX HRD Focus analyzes SNV & InDel in whole coding regions and intron/exon boundaries of BRCA 1 and 2 and determines n "Genomic Score" by examining 24,000 genome-wide SNPs.
