Diagnostic insights for all stages of lung cancer

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States.1 You can trust our testing expertise to help detect and manage lung cancer. We deliver powerfully exceptional diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and monitoring services for your patients throughout their cancer journey.

Diagnosis

The Lung Cancer Mutation Panel (EGFRKRAS and EML4-ALK) will help assess your patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who are being considered for treatment with Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors, thereby predicting eligibility for NSCLC targeted therapies, while providing targeted information, exceptional customer support and supporting better outcomes.

Treatment selection

LungSEQ® 

The Quest Advanced Oncology LungSEQ Concurrent Panel, part of our comprehensive solution for lung cancer diagnostics, is a disease-targeted NGS panel. We’ve developed these and other decision-support tools to help physicians create a treatment plan for navigating within standard of care and clinical trial options, based on the mutations found in the patient’s tumor.
 
The LungSEQ Concurrent Panel simultaneously performs NGS and FISH, and includes KRAS G12C, a recently discovered actionable biomarker for some types of lung cancer.

Solid Tumor Core Panel

Quest also offers a 49-gene Solid Tumor Core Panel to help physicians choose the most appropriate therapy for their patients based on the mutations found in the patient’s tumor.

Test Selector™ Lung NGS Panel—convenient liquid biopsy gives you more ways to test

Liquid biopsies can provide much of the same type of information obtained from a tissue biopsy using NGS testing—but from a simple blood test. Target Selector™ Lung NGS Panel's specimen is ideal for NSCLC patients who are not eligible for a tissue biopsy, or for when there is not enough sample available for testing. Included genes are ALK, BRAF, EGFR, ERBB2, KRAS, MAP2K1, MET, NRAS, PIK3CA, ROS1, and TP53.
