Genetic information about tumor diseases can pave the way to more effective and tolerable therapies. Make individual decisions based on software-supported molecular pathology diagnoses and take full advantage of precision oncology for your patients.
The better physicians understand the genetic causes of various cancers, the more precise and individualized the diagnoses and treatment options for patients will become. Targeted and immuno-oncological therapy concepts are becoming increasingly important. Modern molecular methods and comprehensive data evaluation lets us identify biomarkers for these therapies.
Diagnostic and molecular pathology laboratories use our software-based in-vitro diagnostic application MH Guide to identify relevant biomarkers in tumor samples, and to provide attending physicians with information on individual therapy options and potentially relevant clinical trials.
This information is summarized in a easy-to-understand patient report. This gives you insight into effective and safe drug treatment options and available clinical trials – entirely in line with precision medicine.
The software compares the patient sample data with current, published biomedical knowledge and drug information. MH Guide provides information about identified, relevant biomarkers and their clinical significance in specific cancer entities.
By defining search and filter functions with e.g., biomarker criteria, study phase, recruitment status and other key parameters, suitable studies can be quickly selected. This information is summarized in a well-structured patient report.
Various oncologists and clinics work with us and with molecular pathology laboratories, using MH Guide to provide more targeted and individualized treatment decisions.

Jutta Vinzent, long-term ovarian cancer patient, shares her personal story, from diagnosis through standard treatment, to personalized treatment.
The oncologist or tumor board establishes the indication for molecular pathology diagnostics.
2. Order molecular diagnostics
The oncologist sends sample material (tumor biopsy or tumor sample) with referral and physician’s letter to their local pathologist, ordering the detection of tumor-relevant mutations.
3. Perform NGS analysis
In addition to examining the tumor, the pathologist (a) performs the NGS analysis or (b) commissions a molecular pathology laboratory to do so.
4. Uploading NGS data to MH Guide
The laboratory performing the NGS analysis uploads the data to the MH Order Portal.
5. Analyze NGS data
MH Guide analyzes the NGS data, compares it with information provided by the Dataome knowledge base, and makes it possible to generate a customized report.
The laboratory processes the MH Guide report, signs it, and sends it to the pathologist in charge. The pathologist creates the findings report with all pathological results and the MH Guide report.
7. Select therapy options
The oncologist receives the findings from the pathologist in charge, including individual therapy options and possible clinical trials.

In Germany, NGS-based tumor analysis and data evaluation with MH Guide are considered standard care for certain indications (billing via EBM by the pathologist). Insured patients can also request reimbursement from their health insurance company. In addition, analysis can be performed as a private service (for patients with private health insurance or those who pay the costs themselves).
