Biomarker Discovery Tools: Genomic Biomarkers

Both gene expression and the presence of specific genetic sequences are used as biomarkers for many diseases including cancer. Treatments can even be tailored to an individual patient based on these genomic biomarkers. Typically, large-scale gene expression studies are conducted to identify genes that are up- or down-regulated in a particular indication or disease. These studies rely on the ability of the researchers to design exploratory and confirmatory panels as well as on powerful software tools to analyze resulting data and identify potential biomarkers.

Use CFX Real-Time PCR Detection Systems with predesigned or custom PrimePCR Assay Panels to measure multiple genes from multiple samples at once — liquid biopsy, tissue, or cell-based materials. Coupled with the CFX Automation System II, up to 48 plates can be read unattended. If increased sensitivity is required, such as for the detection and quantification of CTCs and rare cancer mutations, the QX200 Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR) System is an ideal choice, as it allows detection of rare, low-abundance genetic biomarkers.
