UW Medicine Researchers Identify Blood Cell Genetic Mutations That Can Disrupt Liquid Biopsy Results

The discovery is yet another factor that must be considered when developing a liquid biopsy test clinical laboratories can use to detect cancer How often do disruptive elements present in Liquid biopsies result in misdiagnoses and unhelpful drug therapies for cancer? Researchers at the University of Washington School of Medicine (UW Medicine) in Seattle wanted to know. And the results of their study provide another useful insight for pathologists about the elements that circulate in human...

Hematology on a Chip: University of Southampton Develops POC Blood Analysis

In conjunction with Phillips Research, a team from the University of Southampton is looking to revolutionize blood analysis Point-of-care blood cell analysis in doctor’s offices could soon be much faster and more convenient. In conjunction with Philips Research, a team of researchers at England’s University of Southampton is developing a miniaturized cell analysis device with the  goal of eventually delivering a low cost, high speed, and inexpensive system to perform CBCs (complete blood...
