Molecular methods are increasingly supporting traditional immunophenotypic multiparameter flow cytometry (MFC) in detection of measurable residual disease (MRD), including acute myeloid leukaemia (AML).
Real-time qPCR (RQ-PCR) and digital droplet PCR (ddPCR) are highly sensitive technologies but are limited by the number of targets that can be detected in one assay.
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) offers the opportunity to evaluate many genes in a single assay. Improved accuracy together with falling costs are facilitating the use of NGS in MRD.
We have developed a target-capture NGS approach to support researchers in studies of molecular-based MRD monitoring in myeloid malignancies.
This method provides the opportunity to evaluate many genes and variant types in a single assay.
