Clinical Research Sequencing Platform

The Broad Clinical Research Sequencing Platform is a clinical laboratory licensed by the State of Massachusetts (License No 3306) and is registered with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to provide testing under the CLIA regulations.

CRSP is the route for physicians and physician-researchers to access high quality molecular tests such as Whole Exome Sequencing offered by the Broad Institute in a CLIA setting.

The CRSP team is working on an array of additional assays and analytical tools to be validated and released in coming months. These include Firehose analysis modules including MuTect3 and InDelocator for the analysis of tumor-normal pairs from cancer patients. Also coming soon is a Broad-designed, comprehensive cancer targeted panel.
