Auxiliary review destinations incorporate the accompanying:

  • Looking at every patient’s CTCs and cfDNA gathered in CSF with blood tests.
  • Looking at the execution of Biocept’s Target Selector™ CTC stage to standard cytopathology in diagnosing LM inside 2 subgroups: patients with LM affirmed by MRI and those with suspicious LM discoveries from MRI.
  • Investigating CTC and cfDNA levels from the CSF of patients with an underlying negative LM discovering utilizing standard cytopathologic and CTC examination.
  • Surveying the attainability of deciding estrogen, progesterone and HER2 receptor status on CTCs gathered from CSF tests utilizing Biocept’s Target Selector™ innovation.
  • Surveying concordance between the receptor status of the essential as well as metastatic tumor and that of the LM cells gathered utilizing Biocept’s Target Selector™ innovation.

“We are exceptionally upbeat to again team up with Dr. Kalinsky and Columbia University Medical Center in this review intended to additionally approve the clinical utility of our Target Selector™ stage to enhance the analysis and treatment of LM,” said Michael W. Nall, Biocept’s President and CEO. “Among the noteworthyadvantages of our innovation is its flexibility, which encourages applications in different clinical circumstances and for use with various biofluids, conceivably opening up future markets and extended business openings.”Specialized pointer: ATR remains at 0.06 while Beta variable of the stock stands at N/A.
