OncompassTM Medicine, through its molecular diagnostics Laboratory, Oncompass Medicine Hungary Ltd (formerly KPS Ltd) has achieved 100% accuracy (sensitivity and specificity) in three independent external quality assurance (EQA) trials for KRAS mutation testing, including the EQA of the European Association of Pathologists.
Physicians found near 100% response rate to EGFR-TKI (erlotinib and gefitinib) in NSCLC patients harboring EGFR mutations identified by Oncompass Medicine (1). This is a higher correlation than found in clinical trials in which other methods and labs were used to select patients. This theoretically means that the same drug can be more successful in a biomarker based treatment or clinical trial if our diagnostic technology is used.
Oncompass Medicine is certified for ISO 9001.2008 quality standards.
