Menarini Silicon Biosystems CellSearch DLL3 RUO Assay

Menarini Silicon Biosystems has launched a new research-use-only CellSearch lab service to detect expression of the Delta-Like Ligand 3 protein in tumor cells circulating in the bloodstream. According to the company, DLL3 overexpression is associated with the formation of high-grade neuroendocrine tumor types such as small-cell lung cancer. The biomarker tends to be highly expressed in tumor tissue but minimally in normal tissue. Menarini said this is the first time its CellSearch platform is being made available for biopharma companies developing treatments for lung cancer and other neuroendocrine neoplasms.
