  • New Test Overcomes Big Hurdle In Blood-Based Detection Of Alzheimer’s

    Jan 31 | Diagnostics World News | An international team of neuroscientists expect to soon be handing off development of a promising new blood test for Alzheimer’s disease neurodegeneration to a U.S.-based biomarker company. The immunoassay selectively measures brain-derived tau and was recently demonstrated to outperform both assessments of plasma total tau levels and measurements of neurofilament light chain concentration, a protein marker of nerve cell damage.

  • MRD If You Please: Diagnostics Targets Minimal Residual Disease

    Jan 19 | Diagnostics World News | At the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference last week, several diagnostics companies offered insight into their directions and plans for the coming year, and oncology diagnostics was a refrain. Across the space, test developers and researcher groups are turning their attention first to minimal residual disease (MRD) tests. Here we gather feedback from a few of the companies that presented last week. More
  • Cell-Free DNA Assay Could Make Routine Cancer Testing Feasible

    Jan 18 | Diagnostics World News | Scientists from the National University of Singapore (NUS) have discovered a blood test for monitoring cancer patients that could be done for as little as $35. The new Heatrich-BS assay sequences cell-free DNA in clinical samples that get heated to isolate cancer-specific signatures, according to Cheow Lih Feng, assistant professor at NUS’s Institute for Health Innovation & Technology and department of biomedical engineering.
