Liquid biopsy multi-analytes in cancer research: How to get started?
Powerful liquid biopsy: from multianalytes to ultrasensitive cfDNA analysis
A series of three liquid biopsy webinars about how you can get a complete picture by stabilizing and isolating multiple analytes from the same blood draw – to generate insights otherwise undetectable in single analytes. You will learn how to get started with multianalyte studies and how to analyze cfDNA using NGS and dPCR techniques.
While circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA) and to some extent CTCs from blood are routinely used as an analyte in liquid biopsy cancer research applications, circulating cell-free RNA (cfRNA) has recently also gained relevance for biomarker studies. The combination of insights from different analytes promises an increase in understanding molecular processes of tumor biology. However, there are still challenges to overcome in the preanalytical workflow which e.g. includes defining suitable blood collection tubes, transport concepts or extraction methods.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Why multianalyte studies allow you to see the whole picture
- The importance of sample collection and standardized extraction methods
- How to get started: a case study
