Analyte Cases per Mailing Number of Shipments
Multimodality biomarker assessment case analysis 2 Two online acitivites per year

Biomarkers can be tested through a variety of methodologies (eg, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, next generation sequencing, PCR-based testing, karyotype, FISH, clinical chemistry, etc.). Each modality has different technical strengths and weaknesses, along with varied analytical and clinical specifications such as sensitivity and specificity. Results may not be clearly concordant across the modalities. This program will challenge pathologists to resolve discrepancies between different methods or “multimodality” biomarker testing.
