·DNA-based PCR for fragment and sequence analysis for hydatidiform molar pregnancy genotyping

·NanoString® nCounter® targeted gene expression profiling for medulloblastoma molecular subtyping

·NanoString® nCounter®-based transcript detection for gene fusion detection in paediatric cancers and sarcomas

·Next-generation sequencing-based Archer FusionPlex Sarcoma assay for gene fusion detection in sarcomas and paediatric cancers

·MSI testing for Lynch Disease screening (see article "Saving lifes, Changing Futures")

·MLH1 promoter methylation analysis

·POLE hospot mutational analysis for endometrial carcinoma classification

·Targeted genomic profiling of solid tumours by the Ampliseq Childhood Cancer panel test
