Detection and analysis of circulating tumor cells - challenges and solutions

Speaker

Abstract

Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) have been extensively explored as circulating biomarkers in various cancers. Due to their rarity, heterogeneity and stem cell-like properties, detecting and profiling CTCs from blood samples is very challenging. In this webinar, we will introduce the AdnaTests, which uses the Combination of Combinations Principle (COCP) to enable enriching and detecting CTCs in whole blood with high specificity and sensitivity, and how to overcome challenges in CTC enrichment and detection. The AdnaTests combine an immunomagnetic capturing method that increases purity, and is followed by molecular profiling of the captured CTCs. In addition, leukocyte contamination is another issue in CTCs detection and may lead to false positive results due to illegitimate expression of target genes or false interpretation. The AdnaWash allows to reduce leukocyte contamination to such a level that whole gene panels can be analyzed while maintaining the required specificity and sensitivity. Join us and learn more about this well-known technology and applications.
