Liquid biopsies and serial blood collections

The HCB has an extensive library of serial blood collections relating to:

  • Colorectal
  • Lung
  • Melanoma
  • Brain

These collections are of varying sizes,  on individual patient treatment journeys, but typically include pre-op, post-op and samples collected at regular intervals throughout the treatment process. All bloods are collected alongside diagnostic samples and are processed on-site by our highly skilled laboratory team. Available products include:

  • Plasma (Streck and ETDTA)
  • PBMCs (EDTA)
  • Buffy coat (EDTA and Streck)

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
