The Core Unit for Molecular Tumor Diagnostics (CMTD) is a research facility for the molecular characterization of sporadic and hereditary tumors based on next generation sequencing (NGS) techniques, bioinformatic analysis pipelines and interpretation of the results by experienced molecular pathologists and human geneticists. It is an essential and fundamental interface in the area of translational cancer research and clinical studies. The aim of the CMTD is the fast translation of novel molecular markers into clinical application by making indication-specific multi gene panels available.

Please keep the project title short and unique for your project. As project description 2-3 short sentences about your project are sufficient. All other fields are optional, but will help us and you for a better planning of your project.
Please contact us for consultation prior to sequencing projects. This will allow us to provide initial support in study design and therefore optimize the performance of the NGS experiments.
We offer high-throughput sequencing services, consultation and expert assistance in planning, sample preparation and method development.
Here are a few examples of what we offer:
DNA Panel sequencing
- TruSight Oncology (Illumina)
- TruSight Tumor 15 Panel (Illumina)
- Human Comprehensive Cancer Panel (Qiagen)
DNA Panel sequencing (custom)
DNA Exom sequencing
RNA Sequencing Whole Transcriptome
- Illumina stranded total RNA, Ribo-Zero Plus (Illumina)
