Liquid Biopsy

January 17th, 2018

“Liquid biopsy” is a term coined to describe diagnostic procedures done on nucleic acids in the blood or in other bodily fluids (e.g. urine or cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)) of patients. Dying cells release DNA from their fragmented genomes into the bloodstream. This “cell-free” DNA can be broadly divided into two groups: The smaller size fragments…

Importance of UV irradiation to prevent PCR contamination

January 16th, 2018

This blog post looks at some of the benefits of UV decontamination as well as its limitations for PCR work. The principal sources of contamination are aerosolized PCR products that settle on surfaces, equipment and consumables which are then used for PCR. Cleaning flat surfaces with strong oxidizers such as NaOCl or EtOH on a…
