Why choose SCMD?

Our NGS based service was launched in 2014, meaning that we were one of the first labs in the UK to start routine tumour profiling as the default standard for all cases. As a result have an extraordinary range of experience and expertise within our team. We have always stayed focused on clinically actionable targets whilst making sure that our tests are as sensitive and robust as possible. This in turn means that whilst also highly cost effective, we can successfully analyse very small/low tumour content samples, with which many of our competitors may struggle.
