About this webinar

Circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) is tumor-deriver fragmented DNA which originates either directly from the tumor or from circulating tumor cells. Identifying and quantifying ctDNA in patient blood can aid in detecting, diagnosing, and monitoring a tumor or can guide and assess the efficacy of tumor-specific treatments.

Analysis remains challenging for this type of molecule because it requires high sensitivity and selectivity for target genes.

In this webinar, Dr. Kurt Sales, Chief Scientific Officer at Agilex Biolabs, will discuss analytical hurdles and platform compatibility with ctDNA detection and quantification. Illustrating the importance of platform choice in a bioanalytical approach, Dr. Sales will present a case study of our successful detection of exon 15 (V600E) of the B-Raf proto-oncogene (BRAF) using Digital Droplet PCR (ddPCR™).
