Rarity Bioscience - Tests and Custom Assays

Services and assays

Revolutionary liquid biopsy technology

Sample analysis service

Have your samples analyzed

Using the superRCA technology our sample analysis team rapidly detects rare DNA mutations in various tissues, including cfDNA from liquid biopsies.

Our services include analysis using pre-defined tumor panels for leukemia, colorectal- and lung cancer, and gene specific assays as shown below.

Should you not find your mutations of interest below, our sample analysis team can rapidly design custom mutation panels or gene specific assays.

Our team can assist with:

  • DNA extraction
  • Assay design & validation
  • Sample analysis
  • Data processing
  • Delivery of results

Available assays

Tumor panels

Below is a list of available multiplex tumor panels for research use. Each assay can be run in single- or multiplex format from the same sample at uncompromised sensitivity

Gene-specific tests

Below is a list of available genes and mutation targets for service testing. The assays can in principal be set up to detect any mutation with a known sequence. Contact us for additional mutations or multiplex setups.

Custom assays

superRCA technology can be applied to detect customer sequences.

Unique features

  • Parallel target analysis using same sample. Due to the unique superRCA technology, multiple mutations can be analyzed using the same sample.
  • Multiplex setup for high cost efficient and high throughput analysis
  • Extreme sensitivity, for most mutations in the range of 1:100,000
  • High detection efficiency to optimize sensitivity for low sample input
  • High GC mutations can be analyzed with unparallel precision, such as ASXL1 and SRSF2
  • Dynamic range to manage sample volumes from 5ng up to 1320ng
  • Handles most types of DNA input, such as cfDNA from plasma, genomic DNA from tumors or white blood cells
  • Internal quality controls ensures accurate and reliable data, always
