But, there are times when a tissue biopsy is difficult—or even impossible.
A liquid biopsy gives you and your doctor a new option for understanding your cancer and creating an appropriate treatment plan— all from a simple blood test.
Cancer at any stage can shed tumor cells as well as fragments of DNA into the blood system. The more advanced the cancer, the more likely tumor cells and DNA can be found in the blood.
Biocept technology is uniquely designed to allow us to use analytically and clinically validated reagents, when available. All tests performed in our CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited laboratory have undergone appropriate validation.
Biocept has developed the most advanced methods for finding cancer cells and DNA fragments in the blood.
You and your doctor get the same information you would get from an invasive tissue biopsy—all from a simple blood test.
