Fluxion’s Liquid Biopsy Solution
We present a liquid biopsy approach based on CTC enrichment that results in tumor cell purities above 10%. Coupled with a high sensitivity NGS bioinformatics workflow, it enables the effective use of standard amplicon panels to detect somatic mutations present in only a handful of tumor cells. Clinical data from urological cancer pilot studies demonstrates robust detection of somatic mutations.
