Congenica Expands its Clinical Consulting Services
Cambridge, United Kingdom – 13 January 2022 - Congenica, the digital health company enabling rapid and accurate analysis of complex genomic data to transform people’s lives, today announces the expansion of its range of clinical consulting services. In addition to the services already offered by Congenica, the Company has launched a new “sample to report” service, providing additional access to sequence providers when the client’s laboratory has limited sequencing capacity.
Congenica’s in-house team of Clinical Scientists already offer bespoke services for a global customer base, providing as much or as little support as needed to help laboratories meet demand, scale operations and deliver gold standard service for their customers. For labs new to next generation sequencing or for those developing a new assay, Congenica’s experts provide advice on clinical best practices, guidance on validation approaches and development of compliant operating procedures.
For new and expanding laboratories, as well as established laboratories experiencing an overflow of cases, the Congenica team provides gold-standard data analysis and clinical interpretation as part of its “data to report” service, including report sign off in applicable geographies.
Congenica’s newest sample to report service will facilitate direct, upstream access to panel, whole exome and whole genome sequencing through Congenica’s accredited sequencing partners, enabling a more streamlined, end-to-end process for laboratories with limited sequencing facilities. This service will allow for a faster launch of new tests as well as accelerated turnaround times for delivering a final report.
Victoria Hewitt, Lead, Clinical Interpretation Services at Congenica, said: “By broadening the range of our clinical consulting services we can meet the varying demands of our customers, providing full support from sample to report, whilst working with them to develop flexible solutions. We look forward to continuing to enhance the capabilities of our offering, as we drive efficiency and move further towards the routine incorporation of genomics in clinical practice.”
