ctDNA tumor fraction case studies​

Learn about ctDNA tumor fraction through two case studies.​


Research summary​

Read about our recent publication by Rolfo et al, which examined ctDNA tumor fraction and Foundation Medicine liquid biopsy concordance with tissue biopsy.​

Fusions and rearrangements are less common than mutations, but when present, they may be highly targetable alterations. Learn about how comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP) enables fusion detection in tissue and liquid biopsy samples.​


Fusion Detection with DNA and RNA​

Read about the complementary roles of DNA and RNA sequencing for fusion detection in solid tumor tissue samples.​


Fusion Detection in Liquid Biopsies​

True or False: Liquid biopsy can be used to detect targetable fusions. Get the answers here.​

FoundationOne Tracker is a tissue-informed ctDNA monitoring test for advanced solid tumors. Check out the resources below to learn more.

Treatment Response Monitoring​

Learn about how ctDNA-based treatment response monitoring (TRM) can provide objective insights into a patient’s response – potentially earlier than traditional methods like imaging.​

NSCLC Case Study​
