SHARING OPTIONS:

CAMBRIDGE, U.K.—Lab21 recently launched a new Clinical Genomics Center at the Greenville Hospital System (GHS) Memorial Medical Campus in Greenville, S.C. Located in the GHS Institute for Translational Oncology Research (ITOR), the new center continues an ongoing collaboration to introduce complex biomarker analysis into routine cancer patient management. A strategic relationship with Life Technologies, whose Ion Torrent Personal Genome Machine will serve as the key launch platform technology, led to the establishment of the facility.  
 
"Bringing this leading-edge technology to the cancer clinic represents a significant breakthrough and the culmination of a seven-year journey," Dr. Joe Stephenson, medical director for ITOR, noted in a statement. "This genomics center is another major step towards fulfilling our vision to provide personalized cancer care—better enabling us to offer the right drug, at the right time, to the right patient."
