The health system will use the SOPHiA DDM™ Platform to help advance its research of blood cancers
BOSTON and Rolle, Switzerland, October 27, 2023 – SOPHiA GENETICS (Nasdaq: SOPH), a cloud-native software company and a leader in data-driven medicine, today announced that the German company OnkoMedeor Diagnostics MVZ GmbH is now live on the SOPHiA DDM™ Platform. OnkoMedeor Diagnostics MVZ GmbH, which is a haematological lab and part of the Haematological Center Dachau (HAEZ) certified by the German Cancer Society (DKG), handles the diagnosis and treatment of blood and tumor diseases and will use SOPHiA GENETICS’ technology to expand its offerings, advance research and streamline workflow.
Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), which is classified as a lymphoid neoplasm, is among the most common type of blood cancer and affects more than 100,000 people globally. The SOPHiA DDM™ Platform is designed to compute a wide array of genomic variants and continually hone machine learning algorithms to detect rare and challenging cases. With the SOPHiA DDM™ Platform, OnkoMedeor Diagnostics MVZ GmbH will be able to increase detection of CLL, helping to improve patient care.
“The ability to produce trustworthy data that can classify CLL can make a tremendous difference in research and treatment planning,” said Kevin Puylaert, Managing Director, EMEA, SOPHiA GENETICS. “The SOPHiA DDM™ Platform will help not only OnkoMedeor Diagnostics MVZ GmbH, but also its network of cancer treatment clinics, to enhance genetic testing and analysis capabilities via the AI and machine learning technology available with the SOPHiA DDM™ Platform. The enhanced capabilities will further its research and ultimately support the expanded use of precision medicine.”
The SOPHiA GENETICS solution used by OnkoMedeor Diagnostics MVZ GmbH is a customizable solution that enables precise characterization of lymphoid malignancy driver genes relevant for CLL. The solution uses next-generation sequencing and targets key variants from FFPE, blood, or bone marrow samples which can lead to better detection of the disease. Additionally, the SOPHiA DDM™ Platform offers tailored NGS-based workflows to streamline processes – from sample to report – to accelerate analysis.
By using the SOPHiA DDM™ Platform, researchers from OnkoMedeor Diagnostics MVZ GmbH will quickly obtain high-quality and reproducible data that will ultimately accelerate clinical research studies and advances the use of precision medicine.
