In this episode, Megan McCausland, Scientific Advisor for Flow Cytometry at Q2 Solutions, and Scott Bornheimer, Associate Director of Medical and Scientific Affairs at BD Biosciences talk about the enormous potential of flow cytometry as a clinical diagnostic tool.
Currently, pharma companies are looking for simplified, standardized flow cytometry tests to help with enrolling patients and understanding outcomes in their studies.
In the longer term, Megan McCausland notes what will lead to the use of flow as a CDx:
“I think the drug development landscape really continues to evolve towards more personalized medicine. As this happens, biomarkers and their potential translation into companion diagnostics are playing an ever-increasingly important role. The regulatory bodies are pushing, perhaps even expecting, this co-development of biomarkers and treatments with CDx really becoming vital to regulatory approval and clinical use.” - Megan McCausland
