Liquid Biopsy

Liquid biopsy has the potential to revolutionize the cancer diagnosis and treatment market.

We believe liquid biopsy will be one of the most important growth areas in diagnostic tools in the coming decade.

What we’re watching:

  • Clinical data and validations
  • Reimbursement process
  • Biopharma partnership agreements
  • Progress of recent/pending commercial launches in asymptomatic screening and recurrence monitoring
