Cancer screening

Tosoh TRC System

Tosoh products play an important role in genetic testing, which is effective in the monitoring of or screening for some infectious diseases or cancer. Some diseases result in concentrations of specific types of RNA or other proteins within the body and these can be used as markers. Tosoh’s diagnostic system is looking at a specific protein that is indicative of the disease mechanism, rather than attempting to spot disorders in DNA or to identify the DNA of the microbe. The Tosoh transcription-reverse transcription concerted (TRC) system can identify the RNA, for example, produced by a pathogenic microbe or cancer cell.
