Detecting Specific Genomic Alterations in Bladder Cancer using Droplet Digital PCR

9 June 2017

Emil Christensen, MSc, a PhD candidate at Aarhus University, Denmark, shares his research into liquid biopsies for bladder cancer patients at AACR 2017. Emil describes how he is using Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR) to analyze three specific genomic alterations and discusses the benefits of the approach in liquid biopsy analysis. Finally, Emil explains how the findings of the research can predict which cancers progress to invasive disease, helping to inform clinical decisions.
