TUCSON, Ariz., June 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HTG Molecular Diagnostics, Inc. (Nasdaq: HTGM) (HTG), a life science company whose mission is to advance precision medicine, today announced its HTG EdgeSeq technology was highlighted in several posters presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2020 Virtual program.

“We are thrilled to see our technology highlighted in so many abstracts at this year’s ASCO conference,” said Byron Lawson, Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. “It is very satisfying to see our partners and customers enhancing their research and findings with our HTG EdgeSeq technology, and we look forward to building upon this momentum.”

Posters presented at the 2020 Virtual ASCO conference using HTG EdgeSeq technology include:

  • Platform comparison of HTG EdgeSeq and RNA-Seq for gene expression profiling of tumor tissue specimens;
  • Association between immune and tumor gene signatures with response or resistance to tislelizumab monotherapy or in combination with chemotherapy in gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma;
  • Immune- and tumor-intrinsic gene expression profiles of response or resistance to tislelizumab as monotherapy or in combination with chemotherapy in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC);
  • Integrated-omics of MRI-visible and -invisible prostate cancer identifies molecular correlations with clinical outcome;
  • Immune-checkpoint genes as predictive biomarkers of trabectedin in advanced soft-tissue sarcoma (STS): A Spanish Group for Research on Sarcomas (GEIS) translational study.
