Where is RGCC based?
RGCC’s headquarters are in Switzerland. We have laboratory facilities in Greece, Germany and India. We work with a global network of healthcare providers across Europe, the USA and the rest of the world to offer our tests. We currently operate in 23 countries but are expanding our network.
Blood samples will be analysed in one of our three facilities, in Greece, Germany or India. We are unable to tell you where your test will be processed. Our laboratories work to the highest standards and process tests in exactly the same way to ensure their validity.
RGCC is at the forefront of personalised genetic testing for cancer. Alongside this, we are actively involved in pharmaceutical research and development working from our world-leading facilities in Europe. Our scientists regularly publish peer-reviewed research and are respected across the world.
Can brain tumours also be tested with a blood sample?
No, due to the blood-brain barrier, tumour cells cannot enter the bloodstream. This means that we cannot obtain and isolate any tumour cells from the blood sample.
Is it possible to measure circulating tumour cells (CTC) in patients with lymphoma or leukaemia?
Yes, patients with lymphoma or leukaemia can use an RGCC test to measure the number of circulating tumour cells (CTC) they have.
Which test is the most comprehensive test?
The most comprehensive test is the “Onconomics Plus” test. This provides information on the sensitivity or resistance of the patient’s tumour cells to certain cancer drugs and shows options for targeted therapy or an alternative treatment method with organic substances. The test also contains information about the development of the tumour and its potential by identifying epigenetic tumour markers relevant for the therapy, which are crucial for the correct therapeutic approach.
How do online consultations work?
Online consultations will give you the opportunity to speak to any member of the RGCC Network at a time and place that is convenient to you. You will be able to choose from a shortlist of clinicians who best suit your needs. The online consultation will be available via the Cancer A-Z app soon… please keep checking the app for updates.
Will online consultations take place via Zoom, Skype or another method?
Your chosen clinician will be in touch to make the arrangements and choose the most convenient method.
