Chemotherapy Tailored to the Individual

Accutheranostics™ offers laboratory tests designed to provide essential information for the treatment of an individual patient’s cancer.


Accutheranostics™ has developed an innovative laboratory test called ChemoFit™, which is a specialized chemosensitive/chemoresistance assay that tests a patient’s unique biological response to chemotherapy drugs.


Oncologists and other medical professionals can order tests directly from Accutheranostics™ and receive accurate, comprehensive test results in four days.

You are Genetically Unique

Your tumor is unique in the way it grows and responds to treatment. Using your tumor cells and ChemoFit® results, your oncologist can determine a treatment plan that eliminates the regimens that are least likely to work and concentrates on the ones that have the most potential for killing your unique tumor. This information can optimize the success of your chemotherapy and your quality of life.

ChemoFit

When you’re fighting a disease like cancer, you want the most targeted treatment options available. ChemoFit is a laboratory test designed by AccuTheranostics to provide information to tailor treatment to the individual patient's cancer, enabling physicians to avoid the use of specific chemotherapy agents to which the patient's tumor is resistant and select those that will be most effective.

How Does ChemoFit™ Work?

If you are diagnosed with cancer and need to undergo surgery or a biopsy, a portion of your actual tumor is removed and sent overnight to our lab. Your specimen is disaggregated, stabilized and any number of drugs or drug combinations are applied. Within four days of receiving your specimen a profile of which drugs work and which do not is generated and that report is sent to your oncologist to help determine the best options for the treatment of your unique cancer. ChemoFit™ allows your oncologist the opportunity to consider many chemotherapies, single or in combination, before ever treating you.
