Prof. Kurt Zatloukal, Institute of Pathology, The Medical University of Graz, Austria
“It's not just producing the NGS data, it is really doing the data interpretation…”
Professor Zatloukal focuses on testing new technologies for the processing of biological samples. He also works closely with the Centre for Biomarker Research in Medicine (CBmed), an Austrian competence center developing customized solutions for biomarker research. As one of the first labs to install a GeneReader NGS System, CBmed has been putting the workflow through its paces with a range of oncology sample types.
Hear how Professor Zatloukal's lab is overcoming NGS bottlenecks with the GeneReader NGS System.
