What can circulating tumor cells tell you?
Collection and stabilization
CTCs can degrade quickly so how you collect and preserve them will impact the final result.
Try using our gold-standard blood stabilization tube if you store and transport your samples.
CTCs are rare so finding them in a high background of normal cells in blood is difficult.
Try using AdnTestSelect to specifically pull out CTCs using a mix of optimized antibodies.
CTCs are diverse so specificity and sensitivity are key to profiling them at the molecular level.
Try using AdnTestDetect to get accurate gene expression profiles.
Collect and preserve CTCsCheck out this research poster to learn how to get consistent results from CTCs even after storing blood for 72 hours.
Exclusive offerFor a limited time only, were giving you the chance to try the new AllPrep DNA/mRNA Nano Kit for free. This kit lets you extract DNA and mRNA from CTCs using one simple workflow.
