SOPHiA GENETICS Announces Kepler Uniklinikum is Live on SOPHiA DDMtm Platform


The Hospital will use SOPHiA DDMtm to enhance its testing and research of blood cancers

BOSTON and ROLLE, Switzerland, June 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- SOPHiA GENETICS (Nasdaq: SOPH), a cloud-native healthcare technology company and a leader in data-driven medicine, today announced that Kepler Uniklinikum, Austria's second largest hospital, is live on SOPHiA GENETICS' platform. The hospital will use the SOPHiA DDMtm Platform to advance its next-generation sequencing (NGS) testing and diagnostics of blood-related cancers.

Kepler Uniklinikum, which has 1,800 beds, is the central healthcare provider for Upper Austria. The hospital will implement the SOPHiA DDMtm Platform across its medical and chemical laboratory locations to deepen its in-house NGS testing capabilities and expand its offerings to its patients, specifically for those faced with blood cancers and disorders.

Cancer is the second most common cause of death in Austria, with about 42,000 people diagnosed with cancer each year.1 Additionally, on a global scale, blood cancers are the fifth most common type of cancer in the world.2 Advances in diagnostics and treatment of blood cancers depend on timely, cost-effective, and reliable sequencing data. The SOPHiA DDMtm Platform uses NGS to target key variants from FFPE, blood, or bone marrow samples, helping lead to fast and accurate detection of variants associated with the disease. The SOPHiA DDMtm Platform is specifically designed to compute a wide array of genomic variants and continually hones its machine learning algorithms to detect genomic variants associated with rare and challenging cases.

"Kepler Uniklinikum's implementation of the SOPHiA DDMtm Platform will help progress the use of data-driven medicine throughout Austria by ensuring their patients receive the most advanced and accurate testing," said Kevin Puylaert, Managing Director, EMEA, SOPHiA GENETICS. "This testing will not only help the local population but will provide valuable insights and data to support others using the SOPHiA DDMtm Platform around the world."

The SOPHiA DDMtm Platform delivers results that are nearly 100 percent reproducible to provide consistent inter- and intra-run results, ensuring stable and trustworthy sequencing data.
