The benefits of blood-based biopsies with OncoBEAM™

Patients wait 14-77 days for tissue biopsy results,1 often defaulting to chemotherapy instead of receiving the benefit of targeted therapy matched to their tumor’s molecular profile. Highly-sensitive, blood-based biopsies with OncoBEAM™ provide results in 5-7 days, minimizing treatment delays.

OncoBEAM™ provides test results in 5–7 days

Clinically actionable results from a simple blood draw

How much confidence can you put in results from a month-old tissue biopsy that may not represent a tumor’s overall status? OncoBEAM™ liquid biopsy assays are minimally invasive, highly sensitive and can overcome tumor molecular heterogeneity to deliver rapid results,2 helping you make critical decisions quickly.

For patients

Maximum accuracy. Minimally invasive.

Tissue biopsies can be risky and inadequate. Sometimes, a sample doesn’t provide a full picture or more tests may need to be performed. That’s when patients face having to undergo repeat procedures. Blood-based biopsies with OncoBEAM™ require only a simple blood draw and there is plenty of sample.
