Dr. Lauren Saunders has a Ph.D. in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University where she specialized in protein kinetics. She completed her postdoc at the National Center for Agricultural Utilization Research focusing on chemical production in yeast and antibiotic discovery in Bacillus sp. She spent several years at Beckman Coulter developing an extensive background in nucleic acid isolation and purification with a wide variety of sample types. She is currently a Field Applications Manager at Ceres Nanosciences specializing in sample preparation for a variety of applications.
A novel hydrogel particle technology for purification of cfDNA
Ceres Nanosciences has developed a novel hydrogel particle (Nanotrap particle) functionalized with an affinity bait that binds strongly to cellfree DNA and excludes large DNA fragments. It is integrated into a workflow that highly concentrates cfDNA. We compare this cfDNA isolation with commercially available cfDNA extraction kits.
Clinical Dx Showcase:
Ceres Nanosciences' Nanotrap® Particles capture, concentrate, and preserve low-abundance analytes. Our new Nanotrap cfDNA product leverages the Nanotrap hydrogel particle technology in an easy, semi-automated workflow to provide highly concentrated cfDNA with less gDNA.
Session Abstract – PMWC 2024 Silicon Valley
The PMWC 2024 Data Applications in Clinical Diagnostics Showcase will provide a 15-minute time slot for selected organizations, including commercial companies, clinical testing labs, and medical research institutions, to present their latest advancements, insights, applications, and technologies to an audience of clinicians, leading investigators, academic institutions, pharma and biotech, investors, and potential clients. We will learn about new technologies and findings that promise expedited, cost-effective, and accurate clinical diagnosis for early disease detection, treatment decisions, and disease prevention.
