2022-04-08

Clinical Genomics Uppsala receives a grant from Swelife and Medtech4Health – Collaboration project for better health together with Rarity Bioscience, Uppsala University and Karolinska Institutet. The aim of the project is to implement the ultrasensitive mutation detection method, SuperRCA, for precision diagnostics and detection of relapse in acute myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome.

Clinical Genomics Uppsala has a long-term collaboration with Prof. Ulf Landegren’s research group and subsequently Rarity Bioscience around the development and adaptation of the SuperRCA technology for clinical use. The role of Clinical Genomics Uppsala has been to benchmark SuperRCA against digital droplet PCR, which is already used in clinical practice, using clinical samples.
