"Thanks to new Multiplicom test kits physicians are able to identify all the genetic mutations of a condition at once, and use this information to initiate the right - personalized - treatment.”
ESHG 2017: Post event
Multiplicom, now part of Agilent Technologies, was present at the 50th Anniversary of the European Human Genetics Conference (ESHG) 2017 from May 27 – 30 in Copenhagen, Denmark. During the ESHG, we successfully gave demos of our new MASTR Reporter software. This software ensures correct analysis and enables quality control from initial sample to result. It helps us to provide your laboratory with a broad range of Next-Generation Sequencing solutions, which can guide your laboratory towards reliable results.

Next to our demo’s, we also held a satellite symposium on Sunday, 28 May. More than 60 people filled the symposium room. There, we talked about how to make a difference in genetic diagnostics. One of our key speakers was Orlando Diez from Vall D’Hebron University Hospital (Spain). He explained the diverse spectrum of causal mutations in hereditary cancer families and showed some remarkable results. Furthermore, Katrien De Mulder from Sint-Lucas Ghent (Belgium) elaborated on how their lab implemented NIPT by using the Clarigo solutions. Last but not least Loubna Nachate from the Institut Jean-Godinot in Reims (France) talked about how the new Reporter software ensures the correct analysis and enables quality control from sample to results.
Last but not least, our R&D team presented their poster presentation on Integrated diagnostic solution for routine testing of mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 with the BRCA MASTR Plus Dx assay. (click here to read more on this abstract)
