Genotyping cell-free DNA and circulating tumor cells can provide a useful measure of cancer treatment response up to 16 weeks prior to standard clinical measures, according to a study from a group at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Researchers from Northwestern University and the University of Chicago have demonstrated in a new study that droplet-based digital PCR offers the ability to detect BCR-ABL1 fusion transcripts with a lower limit of detection and quantification than currently used quantitative PCR

While cancer's microRNA signature continues to yield to scientific scrutiny, tricky sample prep and the limitations of qPCR have hampered use of miRNA expression patterns as non-invasive biomarkers.

Researchers from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center have developed a droplet digital PCR assay to precisely enumerate a class of T-cells called tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) from cancer tissue, and used the method to demonstrate that the presence and quantity of t

Bio-Rad Laboratories said last week that sales in its Life Science segment, which contains the company's PCR and digital PCR products, dropped 3 percent year over year and 1 percent on a currency-neutral basis.

In a study published this month, Bio-Rad researchers have demonstrated the capability of the company's new droplet digital PCR system using DNA-binding dyes with comparable results to TaqMan and that it's possible to use this new dye-based approach for the quantification of multi

To assay a common risk factor for gastrointestinal ailments, Montreal-based Micropharma this week announced this week it has completed development of a new digital PCR-based test.

Genetic ID this week announced the addition of digital PCR technology to its portfolio of DNA-based testing technologies, for quantification of genetically modified organisms in highly processed products.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Similar to human breast cancers, canine mammary tumors are beset by chromosome instability, researchers from Chronix Biomedical and the Institute of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Göttingen in Germany reported in PLOS One yesterday.
