- 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.
