A Difficult Case: What the Diagnostics of Tomorrow Will Look Like

We have all learned: “Common things are common, except when the diagnosis is rare.” So far so good. Thanks to the large number of cases with increasingly networked data and by taking the current WHO classification as a basis, it is possible for even rare diagnoses to be assigned with greater precision today. This becomes more difficult, however, if the individual findings of the diagnostics chain and the blood values do not fit together in a conclusive way – or if any uncertainty simply remains even though the patient is definitely clinically ill. So what is the next step?

From Genome to Exome to RNA Sequencing – an Interview Regarding Our New MLLSEQ Sequencing Service

MLLSEQ is the name of the sequencing service and the affiliate company of MLL Munich Leukemia Laboratory that was relaunched around five months ago. With the slogan, “We are the next generation – Sequencing Service,” MLLSEQ is offering its extensive next generation sequencing (NGS) knowledge – from library preparation to sequencing only – along with detailed bioinformatic processing and visualization of the data generated. But why the change from MLL Dx to MLLSEQ? What has changed since the reorientation of the label? And how exactly are the sequencing processes at MLLSEQ run? So, it’s high time for a talk with Dr. rer. nat. Manja Meggendorfer.
