KOCHI: A genomic sequencing machine has arrived in Kochi from the United States, paving the way for a revolutionary change in cancer treatment.


It is the first testing facility in Kerala that can overcome the limitations of the current diagnostic biopsy test to identify the source of cancer, identify the genetic makeup and treat the genes.

The system is being developed at the Carcinos Pathology and Lab Medicine Center for Advanced Cancer Diagnosis and Research. Many prominent individuals seeking treatment in the United States are subjected to this test. Samples are also sent abroad for testing. The facility is available only at the Tata Cancer Research Institute in Mumbai and a lab in New Delhi.
