cancer testing technology
Every cancer patient’s tumor has unique genomic errors. Recent efforts by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Institute of Health (NIH) have revealed how important these genomic differences are in treating cancer.
TOMA’s mission is to provide physicians with accurate information about the errors present in a patient’s tumor.
Until now, physicians and their patients have relied on an anatomical approach to diagnose and treat cancer. Now TOMA offers the AmplinomeTM Test, a digitial molecular test that identifies genomic errors in a patient’s tumor and provides information that can help guide treatment and enable physicians to uncover new treatment options. TOMA is the first company to offer a test of this kind.
