Circulating Biomarker Lab

The Circulating Biomarker Laboratory was set up in partnership with Imperial Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre and the Cancer Research UK Imperial Centre to harness the vast potential of ‘liquid biopsy’ in tailoring cancer treatments and monitoring disease progression.

The facility assists Imperial researchers in evaluating tumour-related changes in the blood through isolation and analysis of single circulating tumour cells (CTCs) and cell-free circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) from patient blood samples or any other rare cell populations. Our specialists also provide academic and logistical support as part of the service, which comprises cell/DNA isolation and all necessary equipment.

Subsequent molecular analyses include various genomic and transcriptomic options.

To discuss potential projects, capabilities and pricing, please contact Dr Georgios Nteliopoulos.
