Through collaboration with RIKEN GENESIS and Mitsui Information
Start "OncoPrime Basic" Cancer Provide Sequencing Testing
RIKEN GENESIS CO., LTD. (Medical Office: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo; President and CEO: Nobuhiro Kondo, hereafter "RIKEN GENESIS") announced that it will start provide the cancer clinical genome test OncoPrime Basic based on the contract from Kyoto University Hospital, through a collaboration with Mitsui Information Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President and CEO: Mitsui Information).

 

Mitsui Information and Kyoto University Hospital have been study and commercializing personalized medicine, which uses genetic information analysis technology to tailor therapeutic to individual patients, through cancer clinical sequencing tests, representing the first comprehensive cancer genetic analysis "OncoPrime (oncoprim)" to be introduced clinically in Japan.

RIKEN GENESIS is the first company in Japan to acquire CLIA*1 and possesses quality control strengths, enabling reliable inspections in compliance with international quality assurance standards.

 

In collaboration with multiple study institutions, we have been conducting research aimed at comprehensive genetic analysis of patients' samples (cancer tissue) using the Genetic Diagnosis Panel*2, as treatment plan decisions and drug decisions.

Now, RIKEN Genesis and Mitsui & Co., Ltd. conclude a business alliance agreement to launch OncoPrime Basic, a new contract cancer information sequence testing service.

This service enables faster reporting of test results to patients, since samples are measured and analysis in Japan.

 

OncoPrime Basic was launched in July as a new line-up of OncoPrime at Kyoto University Hospital, and RIKEN GENESY will serve as the contact point for the service.

In addition to four national university hospitals that have already adopted OncoPrime, a series of 10 institutions with six new facilities will be started.

In this business alliance, RIKEN Genesis and Mitsui Information, together with their next-generation sequencer-based genetic measurement technologies and data analysis technologies, will cooperate to promote new contract cancer clinical sequence testing services that leverage their strengths.

As a Sysmex Group, RIKEN Genesis will contribute to the development and evolution of medical care by providing patients with new cancer diagnostic methods as early as possible in order to realize medical care suitable for each patient.
