SOPHiA DDM™ Dx Hereditary Cancer Solution

Unraveling the genetic ethiology of cancer heredity

Accurate detection and reporting of genetic variants predisposing to cancer are critical for better patient management.

SOPHiA DDM™ Dx Hereditary Cancer Solution (HCS) is a CE-marked in vitro diagnostic (IVD) application based on next-generation sequencing (NGS) enabling accurate and sensitive characterization of the complex mutational landscape associated with major hereditary cancers. Powered by the advanced analytical capabilities of SOPHiA DDM™ Platform, this sample-to-report application helps healthcare professionals increase their efficiency and confidence of getting actionable clinical insights and making data-driven decisions that improve the quality of patient care.

Tailored analytics to accurately detect SNVs and Indels in 27 most common genes involved in predispositions to breast and ovarian cancers as well as colorectal syndromes

Reduced turnaround time with a ready-to-sequence target-enriched library in just 2 days

CE-IVD marked SOPHiA DDM™ Platform web for intuitive reporting with unlimited and safe data storage

Product Details

Accurately detect actionable variants

SOPHiA DDM™ Dx HCS accuracy has been assessed through a multicenter performance evaluation study* showing:

  • High on-target rates and coverage uniformity
  • High-confidence calling of SNVs and Indels in 27 targeted genes
  • Identification of PMS2 and PMS2CL variants.

*Performance values have been calculated based on 373 unique variants (SNVs and Indels) in 159 samples processed in 7 sequencing centers on Illumina MiSeq™.

Confidently generate comprehensive reports

SOPHiA DDM™ Dx HCS Solution includes direct access to SOPHiA DDM™ Platform web, a front-end application to upload and analyze genomic sample data and generate downloadable CE-IVD reports. It offers unlimited and unrestricted storage, while keeping patient data safe by applying the highest industrial standards of encryption in compliance with local data security policies.

Easily interpret clinically relevant variants

SOPHiA DDM™ Dx HCS offers an additional component via SOPHiA DDM™ Platform core that allows users to visualize, interpret and report key biomarkers. Clinical Decision Support (CDS*) results are computed by the bioinformatics pipeline in a single workflow. CDS* reports include SNVs, Indels and CNVs for the 27 targeted genes and can be tuned via intuitive cascading filters and prioritization options based on databases, in-house machine learning predictions, virtual panels or custom filters. They also feature a comprehensive risk model providing personalised risk estimates via the BRIDGES (Breast Cancer Risk after Diagnostic Gene Sequencing) risk score. Additionaly, users have access to SOPHiA GENETICS™ Community to share valuable knowledge with peers.
