Copy number variations (CNV) are genomic changes that lead to higher (amplification) or lower (loss) gene copies in comparison to a reference genome. Cells that are affected by aberrant copy number changes for certain cancer-associated genes may experience disruption of normal cellular function and, ultimately, tumorigenesis. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) can be used to determine CNVs across multiple genes in a sequencing run. However, without a widely adopted standard for CNV profiling, NGS assays may evaluate dosage for different targets using different wet and dry methods. In response, SeraCare has developed the first disease-specific CNV reference materials to support clinical labs performing NGS-based tumor profiling of breast cancer patient samples.
