Better biopsies, thanks to NUS team

A team of researchers from NUS, led by Asst Prof Shao Huilin from the Dept of Biomedical Engineering at NUS Faculty of Engineering and the Institute for Health Innovation & Technology at NUS, has developed a new technology that promises to make biopsies more informative and less invasive for cancer patients. The Sequence-Topology Assembly for Multiplexed Profiling (STAMP) technology can detect and classify cancer cells, as well as determine the disease’s aggressiveness. Patients and doctors can also receive comprehensive reports earlier to facilitate timely treatment.
