The Need

Breast cancer biomarker ER/PGR/HER2/Ki-67 results need to be dependable and objective
  • Clinicians need more reliable ER/PGR/HER2/Ki-67 assessment in FFPE tumor tissues.
  • 5% of HER2 IHC results are equivocal based upon guide line recommended classifications.1
  • Resolving HER2 IHC2+ equivocal results with FISH is challenging.1-4
  • Technical and observer variability can lead to approximately 20% inaccurate ER and PGR results.5
  • Ki-67 IHC scores deviate due to a lack of standardization.6

The Solution

Xpert® Breast Cancer STRAT4 paves the way for a standardized, precise and reliable ER/PGR/HER2/Ki-67 mRNA assessment in less than 2 hours
  • Xpert Breast Cancer STRAT4 delivers semi-quantitative determination of ER/PGR/HER2/Ki-67 mRNA levels in FFPE invasive breast cancer sections
    • CYFIP1* reference gene is used for sample normalization
    • Three controls included in each test
    • Software report allows for objective and easy result interpretation
    • External FFPE controls# available for identifying errors, shifts, trends and operator variabilities
CYFIP1: Cytoplasmic FMR1 interacting protein 1
# For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedure. Not reviewed by any regulatory body.

The Impact

Xpert Breast Cancer STRAT4 standardizes reproducible ER/PGR/HER2/Ki-67 assessment
  • Clear and accurate results empower oncologists.
  • Enables flexibility, simplicity and random access for a streamlined workflow 24/7.
  • Easy and fast test implementation.
  • Internal controls meet quality management requirements.
  • Robust test and workflow that doesn't require a PCR laboratory.
Xpert Breast Cancer STRAT4 results are highly concordant with ER/PGR/Ki-67 IHC and IHC/FISH (HER2)7
