The LCCRH is a clinical research laboratory with recognized expertise in liquid biopsy and oncology. Through its research and international collaborations, the laboratory aims to promote the use of liquid biopsy as a non-invasive means of diagnosis and monitoring of cancer at all stages. The laboratory has over 15 years of experience in the isolation and characterization of circulating tumor cells. It also works in the analysis of different biomarkers such as circulating tumor DNA, extracellular vesicles, platelets, immune cells and circulating microbiota.
