Gene Quantification Event 2023


PerkinElmer is pleased to invite Prof. Niels Pallisgaard from Zealand University Hospital in Denmark, to share his expertise on circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) analysis at the 10th Gene Quantification Event 2023 in Munich. With up to 500 cfDNA extractions carried out per week (on the chemagic™ 360 instrument), he shares how various pre-analytical optimization steps and sample quality controls can contribute to the reliable routine application of ctDNA analysis in liquid biopsy.

Talk title: Liquid Biopsies - Optimization and Sample Quality Controls for ctDNA Measurements”

Speaker & Affiliation: Prof. Niels Pallisgaard, Department of Pathology, Sjællands Universitetshospital Roskilde (Zealand University Hospital), Denmark

Event/Venue: 10th Gene Quantification Event 2023, Technical University of Munich, Weihenstephan, Germany

Date: 20th to 24th March 2023


It is expected that liquid biopsies with detection and measurement of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) will be in routine use in a near future. However, to accomplish this, there is a need for an optimization of all the steps from sampling to report as well as a national or international standardization. Focus in this presentation will be the pre-analytical steps including sampling tubes, plasma isolation and purification (yield, degree of single stranded DNA, Proteinase K carryover and elution volume). In addition to the general workflow, controls to qualify individual samples for use will be discussed, including use of spike-in, measurement of contaminating lymphocyte DNA and DNA fragmentation.

 About the GQ2023 Event

An annual event held since 2004 (apart from during COVID), this genomic application focused conference is an internationally attended event that offers a stimulating program held in a congenial Bavarian atmosphere. It comprises of a 3-day symposium of around 70 talks and up to 100 posters, and even includes a dinner at the world’s oldest brewery, Bräustüberl Weihenstephan.

Main topics cover SARS-CoV-2 quantification, spatial transcriptomics, multi-omics biomarkers and liquid biopsy and circulating nucleic acids. The symposium is followed by various 1-day and 2-day PCR related Workshops.
