Science Researcher Update: Spotlight on Meetings, Conferences, and Events

 18th International Conference on Biopsy & Bone Marrow Aspiration 2018

Spotlight on Science Meetings, Conferences and Events brings you information on the following event: 18th International Conference on Biopsy & Bone Marrow Aspiration 2018

In cancer patients, Biopsies provide the histological explanation, of the disease and, currently, have revealed details of the genetic profile of the tumor enabling prediction of cancer progression and response to therapies. The role of CT-guided core biopsy has increased in the diagnosis of benign disease, cellular differentiation, and somatic mutation analysis. A fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy is often used to take cell samples from organs or from lumps that are below the surface of the skin.

Being inherently unique, limited and non-renewable, after a limited number of analyses, small samples of tissue biopsies gets completely exhausted. A method has been introduced that enables fast and reproducible conversion of a small amount of tissue (approximating the quantity obtained by a biopsy) into a single, permanent digital file representing the mass spectrometry-measurable proteome of the sample. The method combines pressure cycling technology (PCT) and SWATH mass spectrometry (MS), and the resulting proteome maps can be analyzed, re-analyzed, compared and mined in silicon to detect and quantify specific proteins across multiple samples.
