How to optimize the preanalytical portion of your circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA) studies

Advances in liquid biopsy are allowing new strides in studies involving circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA). With initial use in the prenatal testing field, cfDNA began to tell its story in fetal DNA genetic testing and has offered an alternative to the invasive and risk-prone amniocentesis. Now, it is breaking barriers in the field of cancer… Read article →
