Oncology / Liquid Biopsy

liquid biopsyNext-generation sequencing (NGS) is playing an increasing role in cancer detection, diagnosis, and monitoring.  Oncology-related sample types such as formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples and circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA) can be difficult for NGS library preparation due to high levels of DNA damage and/or low input amounts.  Swift technologies are developed to maximize library conversion rates and make high quality libraries from these challenging samples.

As the field of precision medicine continues to grow, circulating nucleic acids have emerged as an important tool for cancer diagnostics as well as monitoring disease pro
