An important biomarker for non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) and liquid biopsy, circulating cell-free DNA (ccfDNA) is obtainable through a regular blood draw. ccfDNA from plasma has the ability to provide a breadth of information to researchers and clinicians.
Blood collection and stabilization for reliable downstream assay performance
Clinicians and researchers in the field of non-invasive prenatal testing analyze fetal DNA present among maternal ccfDNA from blood of a pregnant woman to determine the risk that the fetus will be born with certain genetic abnormalities.
Liquid biopsy is a minimally-invasive method of collecting a patient biofluid sample to test for biomarkers of disease. Liquid biopsy is commonly used for many applications in cancer research and diagnostics.
