Mission, Background, and Contact
Hartwig Medical OncoAct® is a molecular diagnostic DNA test developed by Hartwig Medical Foundation, a non-profit organisation in Amsterdam founded by oncologists and researchers.
Hartwig Medical Foundation’s mission is to improve care for patients with cancer. To do this, they set up a high-tech lab with state-of-the-art whole genome sequencing equipment and have developed bioinformatic software. We developed a patient report for current patients, which outlines all possible treatment options for patients with cancer. For future patients we have, in collaboration with researchers, created a database with data from more than 4,500 patients, which is now used for more than 100 studies worldwide aimed at improving treatment.

The laboratory has an ISO 17025:2017 TESTING L633 accreditation.
