12.45 | 9.45 – New Technologies for Detection of Circulating-DNA Biomarkers, With Minimal Sample Size Requirement

Time: 12:45 pm
day: Day One


  • As the potential of liquid biopsies for prognostic, predictive or early cancer detection applications grows, so does the demand for technical advances to accompany the burgeoning range of applications
  • We present new developments that enable targeted re-sequencing for liquid biopsy applications at a fraction of the current sample size and cost, while retaining sensitivity and specificity
  • Examples for detecting microsatellite instability and low-level mutations
    in circulating DNA will be presented
