Fiona Ginty Discusses GE Healthcare's MultiOmyx Technology

GE Healthcare today announced the introduction by Clarient Diagnostic Services, a GE Healthcare Company, of the first lab developed test using MultiOmyx , a ground-breaking new pathology platform which uses proprietary methodology to assess multiple proteins from a single tissue section at a single-cell level. This test, now available, offers an aid to a pathologist’s diagnosis of CD30-positive lymphoma cases with difficult morphology or otherwise insufficient tissue to adequately evaluate the case.

“In many instances, suspected lymphoma cases are not straightforward, and sample tissue size inadequacy issues further complicate the matter,” said Lawrence Weiss, MD, Medical Director of Clarient. “In difficult to call diagnoses, MultiOmyx gives me great confidence in making the diagnosis and relieves me from the concern of running out of tissue. If I only have a small amount of tissue, I do not have to sacrifice or choose between important markers – I can assess them all.”

The Hodgkin Lymphoma (HL) Profile by MultiOmyx helps to assess nine unique antibodies (CD30, CD15, CD20, CD45, PAX5, OCT2, BOB1, CD3, and CD79A) on a single formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section to aid in differential diagnosis of Classical HL.

In clinical validation, this single slide assay called the Hodgkin Lymphoma Profile by MultiOmyx demonstrated high levels of accuracy, diagnostic reproducibility and repeatability, and high sensitivity of all immunofluorescent stains in comparison to traditional immunohistochemistry performed on the same samples. The correlation study identified unique cases where MultiOmyx demonstrated improved performance.

“Traditional pathology uses multiple slices from paraffin-fixed tumor samples and examines them slide by slide, which is less efficient and effective,” said Carrie Eglinton Manner, CEO, Clarient. “Using a single slide may save time, uses significantly less tissue and may provide a more consistent result. Since different parts of a tumor sample can act differently and because less tissue is required, pathologists can access the most accurate and broad tumor analysis available, while eliminating today’s need to prioritize tests due to limited tissue availability.”
