Neoscreen Medical Ltd will use Qlucore’s new precision-based leukemia diagnostics

The Swedish software company Qlucore has signed an agreement with Neoscreen Medical Ltd., Qlucore’s first contract for its new solutions for precisions diagnostics. Neoscreen will use Qlucore’s highly configurable for RNA-seq based diagnostics software to facilitate and speed up decision support and diagnostics for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

Cancer diagnostics are changing rapidly and Qlucore is at the forefront of this development. The first application area for Qlucore’s diagnostics platform is RNA-seq based cancer diagnostics in leukemia.

Carl-Johan Ivarsson, CEO at Qlucore, comments: "Our solutions makes it easier and speeds up cancer diagnostics. Detection and analysis of gene fusions and expression-based classification is moving quickly from research to clinical use. We are proud to support Neoscreen and help them provide their clients’ diagnostics support with fast and visual results."

Transcriptional profiling of cancer has a great clinical utility to significantly improve clinical diagnostics. Addition of RNA sequencing in the diagnostics workup of leukemia (ALL) is becoming increasingly important for clinical decision-making as it allows unbiased detection of gene fusions and subtype classification based on gene expression signatures not accessible by DNA-based gene panel analysis. Gene fusions are important diagnostic markers according to the current guidelines for leukemia (ALL and AML).

Yannis L. Loukas, Neoscreen Scientific Director and Assoc. Professor at Athens School of Pharmacy, Greece, comments: “We are delighted to broaden our service with this new RNA-seq based cancer diagnostics platform from Qlucore. This will enable us to provide genetic subtype classifications of leukemia and unbiased gene fusion analysis to our clients.”

Qlucore’s solutions are currently available for research use only and work is ongoing to obtain a CE mark. The company’s advanced software enables faster and better precision-based cancer diagnostics where the AI-powered machine learning based components makes it possible to subtype patients. Qlucore’s software solutions are unique and with combined advanced visualization, mathematics and biology, makes it accessible to the user. Qlucore is well established with leading academic institutions and pharmaceutical companies.
