New Liquid Biopsy QC service

The Genomics Core Facility provides quality control service of cell-free DNA using the 4200 Agilent TapeStation system.

Liquid Biopsy Quality Control Service

The Genomics Core Facility is now able to provide quality control service of cell-free DNA using the new 4200 Agilent TapeStation system. This will further improve the success of the different liquid biopsy services provided for cancer detection and monitoring. Contact us for further information. 

Our new instrument provides 

•  Fast and simplify workflows to analyse from 1 to 96 samples

•  Unique analysis of liquid biopsies from cell-free DNA, which allows quantifying the percentage of cfDNA in a given sample

•  Analysis of genomic DNA and RNA, and calculation of integrity for FFPE samples

•  Quality control and quantification of NGS libraries

Our new instrument has been financed by the University of Oslo infrastructure funds.
