Back in 2010 an article in The New Yorker called “The Truth Wears Off” addressed the concern of which results to believe when so-called validated findings could not be proven or replicated and led to retraction of scientific publications….

The power of immunomagnetic CTC detection – Meet the AdnaTest family

The importance of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in cancer research is broadly accepted in the scientific community today. Since CTCs undergo phenotypic changes known as the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT), they are a valuable indicator for disease progression and therapy resistance. To learn from CTCs, we must be able to effectively detect and characterize them. There… Read article →
