A new report from Healthcare Market Research Reports has been published that explores the market potential related to diagnostic, monitoring, and screening test opportunities for circulating tumor cell, cell-free DNA, and exosome/microvesicle cancer diagnostics by lung, breast, colorectal, prostate, and other cancers.
