Keywords: DNA methylation detection platform


This talk describes a streamlined DNA methylation detection platform that utilizes silica superparamagnetic particles to improve the processing of circulating DNA in serum/plasma and quantum dots to enhance methylation detection. In addition, a magnetic droplet platform of DNA sample preparation to further improve the sensitivity of methylation detection is also discussed.
