SAN DIEGO, May 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Singlera Genomics, which focuses on non-invasive early cancer detection through circulating tumor DNA methylation haplotyping analysis, was selected as one of three finalists for the second annual AACC Disruptive Technology Award.
AACC Disruptive Technology Award recognizes innovative testing solutions that improve patient care through diagnostic performance or access to high quality testing. Singlera Genomics was chosen from a group of seven semi-finalists after presenting its ColonES test, a targeted next-generation sequencing assay that uses methylation haplotype signatures to screen for early stage colorectal cancer (CRC) and precancerous lesions known as advanced adenomas, to a group of industry experts. As a finalist, Singlera will present the technology in a special session at the 71st AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo on August 5, 2019. Among the three companies selected as finalists, Singlera Genomics is the only company utilizing next-generation DNA methylation sequencing for cancer screening.
