The Oncomid-kit enables the transport and dissociation of a colorectal cancer tumor, as well as the specific culture of cancer cells derived from this tumor. It comprises 3 components:



The specific transport medium OncoMiD-Via® has been specially developed to safely transport fresh colorectal cancer tumour samples. It is crucial to maintain excellent viability of the cells contained in tumour samples during transport from the health care facility to the laboratory. To this end, Oncomedics has developed a specific transport media that allow primary human colorectal cancer tumour cells to remain viable for up to 48 hours post-surgery.   


The OncoMiD-Diss® dissociation medium is specifically optimised for dissociating human colorectal cancer tumour samples. It allows the dissociation of tumour samples into individual cells, thus facilitating their entry into primary culture. Four tubes containing different products are required to initiate, control and stop tumour dissociation, combined with specific procedures for colorectal cancer tissue.  



The OncoMiD® culture medium has been optimised to allow the preservation of dissociated tumour cells from human colorectal cancer samples in primary culture. With a known and standardised composition, and not containing foetal calf serum, they have been formulated specifically for the ex vivo culture of tumour cells from human colorectal cancer samples. They allow the selection of cells of tumour epithelial origin over cells of the microenvironment and are suitable for all tumour subtypes.  


The OncoMiD® defined culture media have been optimised in order to obtain, one week after dissociation and for all cancer subtypes of the pathology to be treated, a purified primary culture of tumour cells. During these 7 days, the high cell death observed reflects the selective elimination of cells from the microenvironment. The procedure is optimal when all media OncoMiD-Via®, OncoMiD-Diss® and OncoMid® are combined.
