FFPE

The company said it can now market test kits for both liquid biopsy and FFPE samples to labs in the EU and other participating geographies.

The Stanford University spinout claims it can get three times the nucleic acid yield as column- or magnetic bead-based methods, with less damage to the molecules.

The company plans to offer four new products by the end of the year, including four targeted transcriptomic panels and IHC compatibility for Visium.

The cloud-based platform is designed to process next-generation sequencing data derived from liquid biopsy and formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue analysis.

The European Commission recently awarded Cergentis a €1.2 million grant to support the development of its TLA technology for use in FFPE samples.

The Fix-C method is a modified version of Hi-C and makes use of the fact that the structural information relevant in cancer is preserved in FFPE samples.

Dust off the Samples

UK researchers have dug into the archive to find more cancer samples for sequencing, Nature News reports.

The company plans to outlicense the assay, developed using a custom Affymetrix microarray, to an interested partner.

Two researchers devised a protocol to sequence DNA from ancient samples and tested it on 100-year-old museum specimens.

The combination of the new test with Biocartis' existing KRAS assay offers customers a complete solution for testing metastatic colorectal cancers as reccomended by professional guidelines.
