Analysis of pre-analytic factors affecting the success of next-generation sequencing of solid tumors

Clinical laboratories are rapidly implementing next-generation sequencing (NGS) tests for mutation analysis, however there are few guidelines regarding sample quality for successful results. We aimed to establish tissue quality parameters for successful NGS in solid tumors and to improve NGS performance. Using a 50-gene hotspot mutation panel we identified the major cause for unsuccessful NGS analysis being DNA <10 ng, which was associated with extremely small and low cellularity samples. High success rates were associated with resection procedures and biopsied tumor >10 mm2. Independent factors leading to lower NGS success were cellular tumor areas and decalcification procedures. Tumor type and paraffin block age did not affect success. We optimized workflow and showed improved NGS success rates with pronounced improvement among tiny samples and cytology samples. Identifying preanalytical tissue factors allows us to improve NGS performance and to successfully test tumors obtained from minimally invasive procedures.
