An important biomarker for non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) and liquid biopsy, circulating cell-free DNA (ccfDNA) is easily obtainable through a simple blood draw. ccfDNA from plasma has the ability to provide a breadth of information to researchers.
Blood collection, stabilization and ccfDNA extraction for reliable downstream assay performance
Five minute read on how to perform multimodal analysis from a single blood sample. Learn how to extract and analyze ccfDNA and additional analytes like RNA from CTCs or gDNA from a single sample of blood collected in the PAXgene Blood ccfDNA Tube*.
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.
