Session 2: June 29, 2021 9:30 AM CDT

A Microsatellite Instability (MSI) Series

MSI has rapidly advanced as an important pan tumor biomarker associated with response to immune checkpoint inhibitors and the drive towards universal tumor testing. 

Join Session 2 to learn more about MSI from three esteemed speakers who will present on the following topics:

  • Colorectal cancer disparities and the role of MSI testing and implementation
  • MSI screening technologies and techniques to measure microsatellite instability
  • Detection and sensitivity of ccfDNA MSI alleles
  • Development of an MSI Assay Utilizing Novel Long Repeats
  • Exploiting liquid biopsies to detect MSI in cancer for longitudinal immunotherapy tracking

In addition to the three presentations, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Join a live Q&A session with our speakers   
  • Peruse our booth to view instrument demonstrations from our sample-to-answer workflow for MSI analysis
  • Connect with Promega sales and Medical Affairs representatives
  • View the presentations from Session 1 where our speakers discussed the history, testing strategies and current trends for MSI testing and why MSI status should be a universal testing approach
