AGTC Genomics

Clinical Research Sequencing

We offers a comprehensive set of solutions for clinical trial sequencing. From choosing and validating the appropriate technology and study design, through sample receipt and processing, to data generation and analysis, we work together every step of the way to ensure that data produced provide the pharmacogenomic insight to drive therapeutic efficacy.


Today’s advancements in clinical next-generation sequencing (NGS) have a profound impact on healthcare. NGS is not just giving clinicians a deeper understanding of disease, it is also unlocking previously unknown genetic anomalies that lead to better diagnoses and treatments of disease.

Our clinical-grade NGS laboratory provides physicians and physician-researchers with high quality molecular tests that is ideal for applications spanning many areas of clinical research including: clinical utility studies, rare and common disease research, translational research, identifying novel biomarkers, and clinical trials.
