The detection of minimal residual disease (MRD) in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) can present a challenge because it can require detecting just a few malignant cells within thousands -- if not millions -- of normal cells.
One of the major challenges associated with the development and validation of assays for MRD in AML is the absence of cell-based reference materials that feature diverse mutations that may be encountered clinically. To begin to address the need for standards, LGC SeraCare developed full-process cell-based reference materials that contain several mutations and formulated them at concentrations down to one in 100,000 in a background of normal leukocytes.
This scientific poster from LGC SeraCare describes the generation and validation of cell-based and ccfDNA-based reference materials for the development and validation of assays for the detection of MRD in AML.
