Cell-free DNA (cfDNA) are degraded DNA fragments which circulate in the bloodstream. The accumulation of cfDNA in blood could appear due to various physiological or pathological reasons, and cfDNA has been shown to be a useful biomarker for multiple applications.
As circulating DNA often consist in small fragments present in low concentration, many challenges need to be overcome for reliable isolation and analysis of circulating DNA (cfDNA).
To meet this need, PerkinElmer has developed complete, automated, end-to-end solutions ranging from blood fractionation to DNA extraction, and cfDNA processing which simplify and improve the efficiency of the cfDNA analysis workflow.
