ApoStream-ADAPT-2012-10

ApoStream®Novel approach to rare cell enrichment and CTC liquid biopsy

Precision’s complete solution for CTC liquid biopsy is enabled via ApoStream®, a device that isolates and enriches CTCs, facilitating any type of downstream analysis, such as multiplex quantitative immunofluorescence or FISH/ISH.

ApoStream® can also be used to collect other rare cell types, such as stem, progenitor, and differentiated immune cells, including CAR T cells and other difficult-to-identify immune cell populations for immuno-oncology applications.

Epiontis ID®Unique approach to immune monitoring

Precision’s Epiontis ID® technology, with its unique approach to cell phenotyping, is a robust, adaptable, and cost-effective solution for immune cell profiling. Epiontis ID® uses unique methylation patterns to distinguish cell types, as all cells have the same DNA but differ in gene expression. This approach amplifies demethylated DNA regions in specific cells using a custom process and qPCR primers, allowing precise cell count in any sample.
