We developed and clinically validated a hybrid capture next generation sequencing assay to detect somatic alterations and microsatellite instability in solid tumors and hematologic malignancies. This targeted oncology assay utilizes tumor-normal matched samples for highly accurate somatic alteration calling and whole transcriptome RNA sequencing for unbiased identification of gene fusion events. The assay was validated with a combination of clinical specimens and cell lines, and recorded a sensitivity of 99.1% for single nucleotide variants, 98.1% for indels, 99.9% for gene rearrangements, 98.4% for copy number variations, and 99.9% for microsatellite instability detection. This assay presents a wide array of data for clinical management and clinical trial enrollment while conserving limited tissue.
