Molecular Pathology is a very exciting and encouraging area of pathology where we are able to assist in the design of treatment plans that are so personalized, that they are driven by changes in each individual’s DNA. For example, two people may be diagnosis with the exact same type of cancer, but they may respond to certain treatments completely different based solely on their DNA make-up.
MCW Pathology Reference Laboratory has a cutting edge molecular laboratory designed for the sole purpose of determining the existence of these minor mutations or changes in a patient’s DNA. This information can open many doors to more effective treatments and allow access to the latest clinical trials. The MCW Pathology Reference Laboratory provides state of the art next generation sequencing for all tumor types providing clinicians with actionable data with industry leading turnaround time and in a very cost effective manner to both the patient and the referring institution.
