Molecular Profiling and More for Your Samples

VERI/O Laboratory Services supports retrospective molecular profiling studies for biopharma clients and  translational medicine researches. In addition to sample processing services using HTG’s on-market products, we also offer early access to our newest technologies, such as our direct sequencing chemistry that run exclusively in the VERI/O lab.  

To support our molecular profiling offerings, the ISO:13485 certified and GLP compliant VERI/O laboratory also provides assay development, sample accessioning, and data analysis services to support studies. 

Let VERI/O Laboratory Services be an extension of your organization.  Take advantage of the benefits of our
HTG EdgeSeq technology without the up-front capital expense.

VERI/O Laboratory Services:

  • Retrospective sample processing
  • Pilot studies
  • Custom assay development
  • Disease-specific validation studies

Applications in Immuno-Oncology

Tumor microenvironment

Measure the gene expression of microdissected tumor subsections such as vasculature, stroma, and tumor from a single FFPE tissue section

Develop insights into the tumor biology

  • Tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL) composition and density
  • Interferon gamma expression levels
  • T-cell effector status
  • Cytokine expression
  • Immunomodulation
Cytokine / chemokines

Simultaneous monitoring of multiple chemokines and cytokines within cancer tissue and associated stroma

Spatial-temporal mapping of immune-stimulatory or suppressant signals

Resistance / relapse system biology

Characterization of pathway modulators that impact cancer drug response

  • Better understanding of how disease progression is tied to underlying tumor biology
  • Investigate alternative clinically actionable drug targets for late stage cancer patients

Measure the expression of cytokeratins, clusters of differentiation, epithelial genes and other histological markers

  • Identify or confirm histological grading of critical specimens
  • Sub-classify cancers into subtypes
Signaling pathways

Assess the status of pathways such as:

  • Angiogenesis/vasculature
  • Apoptosis
  • Epithelial-mesenchymal transition
  • Stem cell markers

Grouping tumors via common dysregulated molecular pathways can provide deeper molecular understanding of tumors

Other Applications

Immune checkpoint expression within molecular subtyped diffuse large B-cell (DLBCL) tumors

Characterization of immunocheckpoint factors together with tumor infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL) markers within DLBCL tumors classified via subtype

Investigate tumor immune-responsiveness of DLBCL tumors

miRNA profiling of tumors and liquid biopsies

Identify tumor miRNA-based signatures from different sample types using whole transcriptome miRNA profiling

Identify tissue-based miRNA profiles that can be translated to blood samples

Immunophenotyping immune cells

Pseudo-flow analysis using cluster of differentiation (CD)-based markers

Sensitivity and ability to multiplex above applications/markers

Subtyping DLBCL tumors

Characterize cases as Activated B-Cell Type (ABC) vs. Germinal Center B-Cell Type (GCB)

Stratify groups for biomarker and drug development
