Multi-Site Study Tests Power of Commercial Reference Materials in Comparing Liquid Biopsy Assays
Investigators concluded that the spiked samples from SeraCare were a robust tool for inter-lab comparisons and discussed some areas of discordance seen in the study.
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is providing informatics services for an NCI-funded project to standardize cancer genomics ontologies.
In March 2010, Austin, Texas-based diagnostics firm Vermillion launched sales of its OVA1 ovarian cancer test.
Proteomics diagnostics firm Somalogic reported data this week supporting the utility of its blood-based 13-protein panel for the detection of malignant mesothelioma.
In particular, the study indicates that the technology's limit of detection is not yet sufficient to detect key low-abundance proteins and that it suffers from reproducibility issues that, while ultimately resolvable, could present significant practical obstacles in a clinical environment.
