The Power of PancraGEN

Added Clarity

PancraGEN is a personalized molecular pathology test, that interrogates cumulative oncogene and tumor suppressor gene damage, reporting results in the context of each patient’s clinical history, imaging, fluid chemistry and cytology test results. Offering added clarity about the biologic behavior of a pancreatic cyst, PancraGEN provides an overall prognostic assessment that helps inform the best step forward when determining which patients are suited for surveillance vs. surgical intervention.

Gain Powerful Insight for Better Long-term Management

Overseen by expert molecular pathologists who have examined DNA aberrations in >25,000 pancreatic cyst patients, PancraGEN’s ability to accurately inform patient management decisions is also supported by long-term follow-up patient outcomes data (up to 8 years). Results provide deep insight into appropriate surveillance intervals or surgical approaches. Allowing you to more confidently manage patients over time, often with less aggressive treatment pathways.

Proven Accuracy

Long-term follow-up outcomes data of patients (up to 8 years) from the National Pancreatic Cyst Registry supports PancraGEN’s ability to help accurately inform surgery and surveillance decisions of patients.

In a study of the National Pancreatic Cyst Registry, PancraGEN’s recommendation of surveillance was correct in 97% of patients. In fact, PancraGEN diagnoses were more beneficial to overall patient outcomes than sole reliance on International Consensus Guidelines (ICG) criteria.1,4

PancraGEN has been performed on over 25,000 patients with pancreatic cysts, representing a full spectrum of pancreatic cyst patients with diverse clinical and molecular findings.

Easy Integration

Streamline your diagnostic practice with our highly specialized CEA assay for Pancreatic Cysts – AccuCEA™

AccuCEA is accurate, and requires only a small amount of cyst fluid (200ul), even if thick/viscous. It can be used independently or in conjunction with the PancraGEN molecular test. Learn more in Getting Started.

Additional convenience of having easy-to-read results delivered through a secure, online physician portal.
