MSK will collect the samples and Illumina will analyze them for ctDNA using its sequencing technology.

The initiative aims to integrate clinical, genomic, environmental, and other data from patients to help determine disease mechanisms and develop precise therapies.

Life Technologies said this week that it has become the exclusive worldwide distributor for LGC Forensics' recently launched ParaDNA platform, a portable DNA testing system designed to determine the quality of human DNA more quickly and efficiently than existing methods.
