Comprehensive Tumor Profiling

Comprehensive Tumor Profiling

With the promise of precision medicine becoming a reality, molecular profiling has become standard of care for many cancer types – and required for certain therapies (companion dx). More than ever, oncologists need a trusted profiling partner to provide reliable, high quality molecular information to guide more precise and individualized treatment decisions.

The Caris Molecular Intelligence®  comprehensive tumor profiling approach to assess DNA, RNA and Proteins reveals the highest quality molecular blueprint to guide more precise and individualized treatment decisions that is proven to extend overall survival. As the first and most experienced tumor profiling service, we provide results back in about 10-14 days* and to help you find better answers when you need it most.


Comprehensive Tumor Profiling Technologies

Caris Molecular Intelligence® uses multiple tumor profiling technologies to decode cancer. This technology agnostic, panomic approach allows our medical teams to more fully understand the biology of the tumor – therefore helping oncologists’ better plan their attack.

  • Immunohistochemistry (IHC): determines level of protein expression
  • in situ Hybridization: detects gene deletions, amplifications, translocations and fusions
  • Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS): rapidly examines and more broadly detects DNA mutations, copy number variations and gene fusions across the genome
  • Sanger Sequencing: examines strands of DNA to identify mutations by analyzing long contiguous sequencing reads
  • Pyro Sequencing (PyroSeq): detects and quantifies mutations, methylation, etc. through sequencing by synthesis
  • Fragment Analysis (FA/Frag. Analysis): detects changes in DNA or RNA to indicate the presence or absence of genetic marker


* After the specimen and required paperwork have been received by Caris Life Sciences, the ordering physician will receive the report in approximately 10-14 days. International cases range from 10-21 days due to additional shipping/customs requirements.

Tissue Inspection and Cell Enrichment

When needed, lab staff will microdissect specimen to increase the Cancer Cell Density for higher quality testing and potentially reduce the number of required slides.
