Clinical Update: 

OneCellDx, Genetics Institute of America Partner to Launch OncoPredikt HRD Assay


OneCellDx and Genetics Institute of America announced that they have signed a memorandum of understanding for a diagnostics commercialization agreement for the OneCellDx OncoPredikt HRD Assay. Genetics Institute of America will create a laboratory developed test (LDT) based on OneCellDx’s proprietary AI Enabled Algorithm and assay. The OncoPredikt assay identifies Homologous Recombination Deficiency (HRD) in cancer patients with quicker turnaround times and lower costs.

Current HRD prediction tests are expensive, time-consuming, require multi-technique processes, and often have sample QC rejection due to low DNA quantity. OneCellDx has developed a proprietary AI-enabled tool to predict key genomic signatures. Genetics Institute of America will run a validation study in its CAP Accredited, CLIA certified facility and launch the laboratory developed test upon successful completion and acceptance of the study.

Enroll your Practice in GH-101!

Genetics Institute of America is actively recruiting practices to join our study, GH-101! The objective of this study is to take an integrative approach to the fields of pharmacogenomics, cancer genomics, mRNA microarrays and nutrigenomics by identifying DNA and RNA variants in persons with chronic disease. We are looking for Physicians and Physician Groups that currently treat patients with a chronic disease including: cancer, cardiac conditions, diabetes, kidney disease, PTSD. Getting your practice involved is easy and not only gets patients the individualized health information they need but allows your practice to be on the cutting edge of genetic research. Click "Enroll Now" for more information about this study and enrolling your practice.


Have you Seen This?: 

Feasibility of Genetic Testing Implementation


The use of germline genetic testing is rapidly changing cancer care and treatment. New therapy options that are dependent on patients’ germline variants have increased quality of life and survival rates.

It's All in the Genes:

Genetic Testing in Prostate Cancer Active Surveillance


With one million cases reported every year, prostate cancer (PCa) is becoming one of the world’s most common cancers diagnosed in men. The mortality rate is still high with over 375,000 men dying of PCa in 2020. 

Changing Corporate Culture:

Bringing JOY Every Day

Genetics Institute of America believes that it is our responsibility to care for the community we are a part of, and that corporate culture can do more to play a greater role in community solutions.
