Circulating Tumor Cell Assay

Detection of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) by immunocytochemistry in the peripheral blood is an independent prognostic marker for multiple types of cancer, including breast and colorectal. The detection and characterization of circulating tumor cells in the peripheral blood is an important pharmacodynamic endpoint in clinical trials.

Mosaic Laboratories’ CTC analysis provides a number of benefits, including:
  • Custom development of multiplex assays
  • Screen for CTC’s and critical biomarker
  • Timepoint analysis – baseline and multiple post-treatment timepoints
  • Mosaic’s CTC Assay methodology detects CTC clusters and fragments
  • Immunomagnetic enrichment detects of as few as 1 tumor cell per blood tube
  • Stained slides are archived and provide permanent documentation of results
  • Additional cells can be enriched and saved for genomic or proteomic analyses
