Navigating the Liquid Biopsy Testing Boom: Sample Management Challenges
The recent explosion in minimally invasive medicine offers promising avenues for early disease detection via MultiCancer Early Detection (MCED) screening assays and monitoring via measurable residual disease (MRD) tests. However, this exciting progress in leveraging genomic data in diagnostics comes with a unique set of challenges in sample management.


Clinical & Research Tools Showcase:
Cache DNA

Cache is helping labs store precious molecular biospecimens (e.g. nucleic acids) with more scalable, sustainable, and standardized approaches. By improving molecular preservation with Cache, labs stand to benefit from cost savings, flexibility, and a broader archive of samples across time.
