Guardant Health Guardant Reveal
Guardant Health has launched Guardant Reveal, a blood-based liquid biopsy test for the detection of residual and recurrent disease in cancer patients. Intended initially for the early-stage colorectal cancer space, the assay detects circulating tumor DNA in patients' blood to identify those with residual disease who may benefit most from adjuvant therapy and/or detect the first signs of a recurrence. Results are returned in as little as seven days without the need for a tissue biopsy.
Parse Biosciences Single-Cell Whole Transcriptome Kit
Parse Biosciences, formerly known as Split Biosciences, has launched its Single-Cell Whole Transcriptome kit in North America.
The kit, which requires only basic lab equipment, enables single-cell transcriptomics for up to 100,000 cells or nuclei across 48 samples. Samples can be fixed for up to six months prior to barcoding and sequencing. The method is based on the split-pool ligation-based transcriptome sequencing (SPLiT-seq) method. Customers purchasing the kit will receive access to the Parse computational pipeline, an out-of-the box software tool that can be run locally.
Menarini Silicon Biosystems CellMag Product Line
Menarini Silicon Biosystems has launched its CellMag product line. The line includes the CTC Epithelial Cell kit for ferrofluid-based EpCAM-positive circulating tumor cell enrichment, a magnetic tool, and consumables. The firm believes the product line will help researchers conduct specific, established, and standardized immunomagnetic enrichment and staining of CTCs in peripheral blood. After positive selection of enriched cells, performed by capturing cells through ferrofluids labeled with antibodies targeting specific antigens, the staining procedure delivers cells that are ready for enumeration, isolation, and downstream analysis. Menarini said the CellMag line provides researchers with a manual system using the same ferrofluid technology offered by its CellSearch system.
