Whole Exome Sequencing

Genetic Testing and Precision Medicine


Cancers are genetic diseases caused by the gradual accumulation of mutations. When cell-regulating genes are mutated or damaged, cells lose control and proliferate endlessly, eventually leading to malignant tumors.

Accurate identification of each unique gene mutation in a patient’s solid tumor provides the best clinical evidence for precise clinical treatment, molecular classification and  monitoring for residual disease and recurrence, as well as providing key information for new scientific discovery.


CanSelect™ Whole Exome Sequencing (WES)


Covering the whole human genome with a total of about 21,000 genes. CanSelect WES also conducts MSI analysis and genetic tests related to 29 chemotherapies. It is by far the most comprehensive genetic testing solution with the potential of accessing medicine under research and development. With an average sequencing depth of 200x, it ensures the accuracy of detection and over 95% coverage of the whole genome region.
