Proprietary Dual Nucleic Acid Extraction

~94% success rate compared to ~40% with other standard off-the-shelf methods

Low-Input RNA Sequencing Pipeline Optimized to Minimize Sample Utilization Technical Notes

Figure 1. (A) Assessing Discovery’s dual nucleic acid extraction method on FFPE across many indications shows a significant improvement in RNA quality. (B) This enhanced method ultimately resulted in the immediate improvement of RNA-Seq success rate of sequencing with at least 100M PE reads per sample and a mapping rate > 85% by nearly 200%.

World-Class Bioinformatics and Data Storage Solutions

Unlock the Potential of RNA-Seq in Clinical Trials

RNA-Seq detects gene fusions and differential expression of disease-causing transcripts, serving as a powerful tool for molecular profiling in clinical trials. Discovery Genomics’ optimized workflows and CAP-accredited, CLIA-certified, and GCLP-compliant laboratory accelerate clinical trial success, aiding in the discovery of potential predictive biomarkers for companion diagnostic development.

Genomics Services Frequently Asked Questions

Contact us at or click here  and we will put you in touch with the right experts to discuss your project.

A Scope of Work (SOW) and/or Purchase Order (PO) must be completed before arranging any sample shipment. Shipments received prior to receipt of proper information will be quarantined and may be returned to the sender if needed information and official documentation is not received in a timely manner. It is suggested that a project kick-off discussion be conducted prior to shipment of any samples to ensure alignment with the laboratory activities upon receipt of samples.

An Analytical Plan will be compiled by your dedicated project manager. The Analytical Plan details laboratory activities and ensures client alignment prior to any sample processing.

The Analytical Plan will be shared with you for edits and comments. Discovery’s quality standards require that the Analytical Plan is agreed upon and signed off by Discovery and the client prior to any testing being performed.

Your primary contact throughout your project will be your dedicated project manager.

NOTE: Some projects may not require a formal Analytical Plan if deemed out of scope for the nature of the project at Discovery's discretion. This will be discussed with your Project Manager during the initiation of each project.

All sample shipments will require a clearly defined manifest including Protocol/Study identification, sample information, patient ID (if available), and contact information for shipper to rectify missing and/or ambiguous information.

Any shipments missing this critical information will be put into quarantine and may experience extended turnaround times.
