What happens with my blood sample?
There are a few steps that take place before you send in your blood sample for the RaDaR test.
First, your oncologist will send NeoGenomics a tissue sample from your tumor, either from a biopsy or from removal surgery.
Next, our lab technicians will determine the unique profile of your particular cancer, and manufacture a RaDaR panel personalized to you. This process takes about 4 weeks.
Then, during the course of your care, your oncologist can ask for blood samples to be sent to our labs to check on the status of your cancer.
Once we receive your blood sample, our technicians will test your blood sample using your personalized RaDaR panel. They will look for traces of ctDNA that may still be present in your body. This process takes about seven calendar days.
After seven calendar days, your oncologist will receive a clear, detailed report from NeoGenomics, indicating whether ctDNA (cancer cells) were detected. From there, your oncologist will be armed with information that may be used to guide the next steps in your care plan.
