ctDNA Detection Service

ACTMonitor™ - Use Liquid Biopsy to Monitor Tumor Burden and Drug Resistance

ACTMonitor™ uses circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) to provide an early detection of cancer recurrence and drug resistance. ctDNA consists of fragments of DNA released from necrotic or apoptotic tumor cells into the blood stream. ctDNA carries important genetic information of cancer patients, and changes dramatically before changes can be observed by protein markers and in radioimages. Therefore, ctDNA provides a strong basis for molecular diagnostic tests. Monitoring ctDNA can detect occurrence of variants that would lead to drug sensitivity or resistance, providing assessment on treatment responses and early detection for cancer recurrence.

 

Liquid Biopsy Advantages

- A non-invasive test, which decreases risk of infection and enables repeated testing at different time points

- Variants detected can reflect tumor heterogeneity

- Highly sensitive and real time monitoring of tumor dynamics

- Assessment of treatment response, understanding resistance mechanisms and monitoring cancer recurrence

ACTMonitor™ Advantages

- Repeated analyses of liquid biopsies over time enable long term disease monitoring

- Provides real-time and comprehensive tumor mutation analyses

- Monitors treatment outcome and provides information on the occurrence of mutations that leads to drug resistance

- Applicable for different types of solid tumors

- Short turnaround time: 14 calendar days
