Biocept Progesterone Receptor Liquid Biopsy Test
Biocept has announced the commercial availability of its liquid biopsy test for progesterone receptor (PR), which can be used for the detection and monitoring of a key biomarker in the blood of patients with breast cancer. The company noted that the ability to detect PR expression in circulating tumor cells complements its existing ER and HER2 assays for biomarker analysis in breast cancer. Biocept's Target Selector PR expression test is performed on circulating tumor cells using fluorescently labeled antibodies. The company's liquid biopsy tests are performed in its CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited laboratory in San Diego.
