AdnaTest ProstateCancer

For the enrichment and molecular characterization of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from whole human blood
  • Efficient isolation and detection of CTCs from whole blood
  • Molecular characterization of CTCs
  • High specificity and sensitivity
  • Processing of multiple samples in parallel
AdnaTest ProstateCancer allows molecular characterization of CTCs by combining AdnaTest ProstateCancerSelect with AdnaTest ProstateCancerDetect using the Combination of Combinations Principle (COCP). AdnaTest ProstateCancerSelect is a highly specific immunomagnetic cell-selection system for enriching circulating tumor cells from peripheral blood. AdnaTest ProstateCancerDetect allows sensitive analysis of prostate cancer-associated gene expression in immunomagnetically enriched tumor cells by reverse transcription and PCR.

AdnaTest Detect – Multiplex PCR of various cancer-associated tumor markers
In a second step the enriched cells are examined by RT-PCR for tumor-associated expression patterns. The mRNA strands are reverse transcribed into cDNA. Subsequently, several tumor-associated markers can be amplified using multiplex PCR and visualized.

AdnaTest ProstateCancerDetect results of samples analyzed with an Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer
The first lane shows the DNA size standard (DNA-Ladder). Sample 1 is positive for EGFR, sample 2 is positive for PSMA and PSA, and sample 3 is positive for PSMA, PSA and EGFR. Sample 4 is negative. Actin is detected in samples 1 to 4. The PCR negative (C-) and positive control (C+) are shown in the last two lanes.

AdnaTest Select – Immunomagnetic cell selection with multiple tumor-associated
In the first step, the CTCs in the blood are enriched (AdnaTest Select). This is achieved using antibody-coated magnetic particles (beads). Several antibodies are used, which bind with high specificity and affinity to the corresponding cancer cells. The enriched cells are lysed and subsequently purified several times to extract mRNA.

AdnaTest workflow
AdnaTest BreastCancerSelect enables the immunomagnetic enrichment of tumor cells via epithelial and tumor-associated antigens. Antibodies against epithelial and tumor-associated antigens are conjugated to magnetic beads (Dynabeads) for labeling of tumor cells in peripheral blood. Labeled cells are extracted by a magnetic particle concentrator (AdnaMag-L and AdnaMag-S) and are subsequently lysed. The results of the AdnaTest are generate within 8 hours.

AdnaTest AR-Detect results of samples analyzed with an Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer
The first lane shows the DNA size standard (DNA-Ladder). Samples 1 to 3 and sample 5 are positive for AR. Sample 4 is negative. The PCR negative (C-) and positive control (C+) are shown in the last two lanes.
Performance
AdnaTest ProstateCancer is a highly specific immunomagnetic cell selection system for enriching circulating tumor cells from peripheral blood and includes a highly sensitive RT-PCR for detecting prostate cancer-specific mRNA markers.
Principle
AdnaTest technology uses an optimized combination of antibodies for cell selection in 5 ml whole blood and a combination of tumor-associated markers for the detection of tumor cells: PSMA, PSA and EGFR.
Procedure
The AdnaTest uses a two-step process (Select and Detect) to generate results within 5 hours (see figures “AdnaTest workflow”). AdnaTest ProstateCancerSelect enables the immunomagnetic enrichment of tumor cells from whole blood via epithelial- and tumor-associated antigens. Antibodies against epithelial- and tumor-associated antigens are conjugated to magnetic beads for labeling of tumor cells. Labeled cells are extracted by a magnetic particle concentrator (AdnaMag-L and AdnaMag-S), lysed and mRNA is then purified from these lysates (see figures “AdnaTest Select – Immunomagnetic cell selection with multiple tumor-associated antibodies labeled to magnetic beads”). In the second step, the isolated mRNA is transcribed into cDNA and can be amplified using multiplex PCR (see figures “AdnaTest Detect – Multiplex PCR of various cancer-associated tumor markers”). AdnaTest ProstateCancerDetect contains Oligo (dT) 25-coated beads for the isolation of mRNA from the lysate of pre-enriched tumor cells. Reverse transcription results in cDNA that can subsequently be used as template for tumor cell detection and characterization by multiplex PCR. Multiplex PCR provides tumor-associated gene expression profiles for a variety of relevant tumor markers to ensure that the selected cells are cancer cells. The PrimerMix ProstateDetect allows the amplification of three tumor associated antigens and one control gene. With the PrimerMix AR-Detect the androgen receptor (AR) is amplified. The primers generate fragments of the following sizes:
PrimerMix ProstateDetect
 Target gene  PCR fragment size (bp)
 PSMA  449
 PSA  357
 EGFR  163
 Actin (internal PCR control)  120
PrimerMix AR-Detect
 Target gene  PCR fragment size (bp)
 AR  440

Importantly, the AdnaTest is an open platform that allows the profiling of additional custom selected mRNA targets for comphrehensive biomarker discovery.
