OmiCure uses the SOPHiA DDM™ Platform to advance its testing technology
BOSTON, United States and Rolle, Switzerland, December 21, 2023 – SOPHiA GENETICS (Nasdaq: SOPH), a cloud-native software company and a leader in data-driven medicine, today announced that OmiCure®, a leading European digital health company, is live on the SOPHiA DDM™ Platform. OmiCure, which works to expand the use of data-driven medicine via its tumor profiling tests, will use SOPHiA GENETICS’ technology to enhance its offerings in support of physicians and patients.
OmiCure, which was launched in November 2019 as a spin-off of Ariana Pharma, provides state-of the-art interpretation tools to oncologists to aid them in the use of precision medicine, specifically for complex, rare or treatment-resistant cancers. The company offers a range of molecular assays using both genomics and transcriptomics data, and proprietary comprehensive AI therapeutic decision support algorithms. The OmiCure platform provides a deep level of understanding to clinicians, helping them in their informed treatment decision. The SOPHiA DDM™ Platform, which is a cloud-based platform that uses artificial intelligence (AI), will help streamline OmiCure’s tests and algorithms.
“The work we do at OmiCure is personalized and time sensitive, and the ability to use the best towards getting fastest and most accurate results is paramount to the success of our company,” said Thomas Turcat, Founder and COO of OmiCure. “By using the SOPHiA DDM™ Platform we are enhancing our testing and helping to advance the industry’s use of data-driven medicine to create the most personalized treatment plans.”
Since it launched in 2019, OmiCure has been investing in the development of tumor profiling testing tools based on the sequencing and analysis of DNA and RNA. This testing relies on next-generation sequencing (NGS) to help identify key biomarkers. However, NGS can produce a vast dataset. The SOPHiA DDM™ Platform gives access to a fully integrated bioinformatic workflow that helps quickly synthesize the large volume of data that comes with NGS tests. The Platform combines analytical performance with streamlined interpretation of complex genomic variants from comprehensive genomic profiling.
“We work daily at SOPHiA GENETICS to provide technology and solutions that may have the ability to improve care and outcomes,” said Kevin Puylaert, Managing Director, EMEA, SOPHiA GENETICS. “The SOPHiA DDM™ Platform provides highly accurate insights from multiple genomic alterations across a broad panel of genes and provides organizations like OmiCure valuable insights to inform oncologists on treatment options for patients with challenging cancers. We are excited to support OmiCure in advancing its products and expanding the use of data-driven medicine.”
With SOPHiA GENETICS’ global data-sharing network, OmiCure will be able to offer physicians clinically actionable insights from data to help improve patient outcomes worldwide. In addition, the technology will aid OmiCure in creating a more robust in-house database that can be used to help increase its team’s expertise with each test.
