Clinical Trials

We are the central laboratory for several clinical trials and observational studies, for which we provide comprehensive molecular diagnostics and pathology testing services.


Using our highly sensitive and specific proprietary panel of assays we perform the following analyses to screen for genetic alterations predictive of response or resistance to targeted therapies:

  • Mutation analysis in tumor tissue and blood

  • Gene amplification and translocation testing

  • Immunohistochemistry (IHC)

  • Gene expression

Our Molecular Oncology Laboratory is fully staffed by a team of highly experienced molecular biologists and pathologists and equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Our streamlined sample reception and processing systems and proprietary data management software ensure efficient sample handling and communication with recruiting centers.

  • We offer an 8 working day turnaround on samples received and are able to process formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tumor tissue, fresh frozen samples, serum, plasma, platelets, and cytologies.

We have served, or are currently serving, as the central laboratory for the following Phase III trials:

GOAL SLCG/Astra Zeneca
EUCROSS University of Cologne/Pfizer
BRF113928 GSK
GEM1505 GEM/Roche
1200.55 Boehringer Ingelheim
NVALT15 Stichting NVALT Studies/SLCG
IDENTIFY Astrazeneca

We also have a Phase I-II Trial Unit and are able to perform pharmacokinetics studies in-house for patients recruited to phase I-II cancer trials open in the Dr. Rosell Oncology Institute (Quirón Dexeus University Hospital, Hospital Quirón Teknon and Sagrat Cor University Hospital, Barcelona, and the General de Catalunya University Hospital, Sant Cugat dels Vallès).
