    Liquid Biopsy – Pain Free

    Liquid Biopsy for Patients

    A Less Invasive Option for Tumor Profiling

    A liquid biopsy is a recent advancement in the diagnostic field that allows physicians to use a blood draw in lieu of bone marrow biopsy for hematologic cancers. It can also be a useful tool for monitoring patients with solid tumors.

    Because bone marrow biopsies and traditional biopsies can be painful and invasive, this offers a patient a less invasive way to have their tumor profiled and monitored. It is also useful alternative for patient who cannot undergo a biopsy procedure.

    The test looks for DNA/RNA that the tumor has sloughed off into the blood stream. It can provide insights into the cancer that are similar to a tissue sample.

    Liquid Biopsy for Patients

     

    Liquid biopsies are useful for:

      • Detecting the presence of cancer and profiling the tumor
      • Monitoring response to treatment
      • Ongoing surveillance to detect if a relapse of the disease has occurred

    How it works:

      • A patient provides a blood sample
      • The sample is sent to a lab for analysis
      • Our lab uses advanced DNA/RNA sequencing technology to look for cancer cells that are circulating in the blood
      • We analyze the results using algorithms and Artificial Intelligence (AI), then send a report back to your physician that may offer insights to the tumor and therapies that may be effective
