Clinical utility of tumor/normal matched sequencing

Paired tumor normal sequencing through Tempus xT identifies somatic mutations more definitively, provides a more accurate measure of TMB, and may identify clinically relevant incidental germline findings.

Hear from Calvin Chao, MD, SVP of Medical Affairs at Tempus as he shares the benefits of a tumor/normal matched sequencing approach, leveraging the Tempus xT test.
