SymGene Focus

Colon Cancer NGS Panel

What is the SymGene Focus – Colon Cancer Panel?

The colon cancer panel is a validated genomic profile that includes 10 genes with compelling clinical and biological evidence as biomarkers to predict drug responses. The genes in our panel are connected with approved drugs in standard care or for off-label drugs in clinical trials.


Who Should Have this Test Run?

Genetic profiling of these genes is useful for assessing prognosis and guiding treatment of individuals with colon cancer. SymGene Focus can also be used to help determine clinical trial eligibility for patients with alterations in genes not amenable to current FDA-approved targeted therapies.


Test Details

• Designed for tumor profiling of primary or metastatic colon cancer.
• Assesses all coding exons of each gene for substitutions, insertions and deletions of less than 50 bp, and copy number variants (gene amplifications or homozygous loss).
• This test is performed to evaluate for somatic mutations within tumor samples; does not assess for germline alterations within the genes listed.


 What Genes Are Included in the Colon Cancer Panel?

BRAF    KRAS    MLH1    MSH2    MSH6    NRAS    PIK3CA    PMS2    POLD1    POLE


Order SymGene

Healthcare providers have several options for ordering Sygmene for their patients including LabDOX, fax, and phone. Healthcare providers must first complete a test requisition form to start the process. Turn around times average 2 weeks from the time a specimen is received.
