In several cancer models, it was shown that tumor mutation burden may correlate with response to immune checkpoint blockade therapy. However, whole-exome sequencing of FFPE samples is not ideal for implementation in molecular pathology laboratories.

In this webinar, we will present how Ion Torrent Oncomine Tumor Mutation Load Assay can be used in a pathology laboratory to determine this emerging biomarker starting from limited FFPE material.

Learning objectives of the webinar:

  • Why tumor mutation load is an emerging biomarker for immune checkpoint therapy
  • How an NGS research target panel can be used to determine mutation load biomarker in a 2-day workflow
  • Discuss how you can easily implement on clinical research samples in your laboratory
