Take a virtual tour of our laboratory: from the biopsy to the patient report
What happens to your tumor tissue and blood during a comprehensive DNA test? What exactly does all the complex equipment do? How do you know which treatments might be an option for you? This year we are not providing a physical tour of our laboratory, but instead we have produced a video especially for World Cancer Day, when it will also be published. In this video you can take a look behind the scenes and there are even animations that provide a look inside the machines. We will explain how the comprehensive DNA test works with video footage of the analysts at work, animations and explanatory commentary. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us and we will respond as soon as possible. The video will be available from 4 February on OncoAct.nl.
