Development and performance of a formalin-damaged multiplexed DNA tumor mutation FFPE reference material
Determining and using the most effective and safest treatment is of great importance in cancer disease management. Recently, a potential biomarker has been identified in immunotherapy: tumor mutational burden (TMB), an assessment of the number of relevant mutations in a tumor.
Reference materials that closely mimic the damage profile of patient FFPE samples are lacking. We have developed a formalin-damaged, multiplexed biosynthetic FFPE reference material to mimic the damage found in patient samples to create a more patient-like control that can be used to assess the entire tumor profiling workflow. We compared its performance in downstream assays to that of material with less damage.
