Genome analysis has led to a new era of precision medicine. Disease-related genetic alterations can now be detected in DNA fragments circulating in the bloodstream.
All cells shed DNA creating a tremendous opportunity for non-invasive disease detection. A single blood draw can reveal a person’s genetic predisposition to disease or even specific drug therapies. But deep knowledge requires powerful tools and precision is paramount to uncovering the genetic clues floating in our blood. We are developing novel genomic tools to reveal DNA alterations with unprecedented accuracy for clinical and research use.
Our team is passionate, experienced and looking to expand.
Avida to present performance of Point-n-Seq Kits at AGBT poster session
Two Birds with One Stone - Novel Unified Target Sequencing Enabling Methylation and Genomic Alteration Analysis of Cell-Free DNA Without Sample Splitting
3/2/2021 12:00-2:30pm PST
Avida Biomed presented Point-N-Seq, our new liquid biopsy NGS solution at ASCO on May 29th, 2020. Point-n-Seq is the first technology that can conduct a combined methylation and genomic alteration analysis without having to split samples. With an analytical sensitivity of 0.003%, a turnaround time of just 2 days at 1/5th of the sequencing cost, Point-n-Seq is a higher performing, more cost-effective technology poised to fill the gaps in existing NGS solutions. Results from our pilot study analyzing plasma collected from CRC patients and individuals with polyps suggest that Point-n-Seq is the ideal platform solution for screening and monitoring cancer at-scale.
