About the clonoSEQ Assay

When it comes to treating blood cancers, a physician’s ability to detect minute traces of disease is critical to patient care. The clonoSEQ Assay is up to 100 times more sensitive than other leading minimal residual disease (MRD) detection methods. clonoSEQ MRD results allow a physician to adjust treatment based on disease burden, assess response to therapy over time, and monitor patients while in remission. Based on a physician’s judgment, these results may mean the possibility of earlier intervention or less unnecessary treatment.
