Sensing the Tiniest Change

| Menno Prins

New biomarker sensing technology can detect miniscule concentrations of molecules in the blood to assist with patient monitoring

Diagnostics Genetics and epigenetics

Thinking Outside the (Genome) Box

| Jason Mellad

Epigenetics may combine with liquid biopsy to offer an effective way of detecting early-stage cancers and recurrences

One Drop at a Time

| Alexander Dobrovic and Cloud Paweletz

When seeking the greatest benefit from liquid biopsy, droplet digital PCR can help by offering speed, sensitivity, and absolute quantitation

Inside the Lab Clinical care

Gone Fishing

A combination of magnetic particles that bind circulating tumor cells and a magnetic wire that samples them directly from the vein could lead to earlier diagnosis

Fighting Resistance in Bloodstream Infections

| Luke Turner

When bacteria become resistant to the last line of defense, rapid detection and treatment is more important than ever. A new assay can help with treatment selection for carbapenem-resistant infections

Inside the Lab Companion diagnostics

Fluid Evidence

Liquid biopsy can help us appropriately treat patients with anti-PD-L1 immunotherapies, and ddPCR enables ongoing monitoring and adjustment of treatment
