NEO New Oncology AG announced today the commercial launch of “NEOliquid”, a non-invasive cancer diagnostics test. NEOliquid is uniquely able to detect all therapeutically relevant point mutations, small insertions and deletions, translocations and copy number changes from a single blood sample, offering a painless and low-risk alternative to a tissue biopsy. NEOliquid comprises 39 genes relevant for the treatment of solid tumors, offering the physician with a rational decision making guide to match their patient with the best targeted treatment. NEO New Oncology AG is the only European provider performing comprehensive routine molecular cancer diagnostics in both clinical tissue samples and blood.
NEOliquid identifies clinically relevant, cancer-specific point mutations, insertions, deletions and gene fusions in circulating cell-free DNA down to an allele frequency of 0.1%. In addition, NEOliquid is able to detect copy number alterations in tiny amounts of circulating tumor DNA.
