Liquid Biopsy Technologies Likely to Lead the Transformation of Cancer Profiling and Personalized Treatment Strategies

This research service encompasses a comprehensive analysis of minimally-invasive and non-invasive biopsy platforms that enable enhanced tumor profiling, treatment monitoring and precision oncology applications. This service primarily focuses on the use of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and extracellular vesicles (EVs), derived from bio-fluids such as blood and urine, for molecular analysis across research and healthcare settings. This study also evaluates the technology, clinical, patent, and application landscapes prevalent across liquid biopsy settings, while providing valuable insights across its global technological impact and future perspectives.
