In the coming years many novel biomarkers will be identified using single cells analysis. These discoveries will drive precision medicine, the new frontier in disease prediction and disease control.
Menarini Biomarkers Singapore (MBS) mission is to identify, develop and validate new biomarkers on circulating human cells for applications in diagnostics. From liquid biopsies, circulating cells such as CFC (circulating fetal cells), CTC (circulating tumor cells) and PIC (pathogenic immune cells) will be captured by specific antibodies developed against novel targets and conjugated to FerroFluid (Cell Search Technology) and further selected and analysed with the DEPArray platform. Together with Menarini Silicon Biosystems (MSB), Menarini Biomarkers aims to recover and select the most rare cell types from any type of tissues or liquid biopsies. The identified novel biomarkers will provide actionable new tools to clinicians to follow disease progression and measure real-time responses to therapies.
