MASS General researchers show ddPCR brain tumor liquid biopsy assay has tenfold improvement in sensitivity over any prior assay

2020-10-16T15:29:16+00:00

Genetic mutations that promote the growth of the most common type of adult brain tumors can be accurately detected and monitored in blood samples using an enhanced form of liquid biopsy developed by researchers at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). Comparing blood samples from patients with gliomas with tumor biopsy tissues from the same patients, [...]

Phage Testing of Bacterial Cultures

2019-06-19T12:08:17+00:00

Regulatory agencies require companies using microbial cell lines that produce products for human use to regularly complete biosafety testing to ensure that cell banks are free of phage contamination. Bacteriophage (phage) is a virus that infects and replicates within bacteria1, basically bacterial predators. One hundred times smaller than a bacterium, phage are found wherever [...]

Digital PCR Services

2019-05-23T12:03:50+00:00

Digital PCR (dPCR) provides precise and absolute quantification of nucleic acids without a standard curve and without dependence on amplification efficiency.Digital PCR is ultrasensitive; therefore, appropriate for testing allelic variants and targets of low abundance that are below the sensitivity limit of QPCR. It is also very precise, and is a better tool than QPCR when precise determination of the ratio of several nucleic acid sequences is required.
