New mass spectrometry imaging platform for precise and tunable spatial analysis of biological samples
Problem Implementation of mass spectrometry (MS) imaging for analysis of biological samples in clinical and pharmaceutical settings is rising.1,2 Allowing imaging of thousands of molecules simultaneously, MS imaging has become invaluable in applications ranging from disease diagnosis to drug discovery. Various MS imaging techniques have been developed...
Diagnosis of lung cancer subtypes using rapid molecular test
New cancer subtyping system can improve treatment options without disrupting clinical workflow.Problem Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death, with over 100,000 people dying per year.1 As most tumors are inoperable by the time the cancer is detected, patients are increasingly being placed on tailored treatment regimens. Prescribing targeted...
Early detection of cancer from blood draw
Problem Eight million people die from cancer each year, and 90% of these deaths happen in cases where the cancer has spread throughout the body from the initial tumor site.1 In the early stages of cancer, tumor cells can shed from the primary mass and enter the bloodstream. Clinicians can glean important information about the tumor from these circulating...
