- Cancer threatens the health of human beings nowadays, and it has high mortality rates all over the world. The early detection of cancer is the key to the prevention and treatment of cancer, and this is greatly dependent on a reliable detection method. Laboratory technologies have been widely used in clinical applications and have played important roles in the prevention and treatment of cancer. With the improvement of many fields such as sequencing technology, materials science and mass spectroscopy, traditional laboratory technologies applied to the early detection of cancer using tumor biomarkers have improved and novel technologies emerge constantly, which are summarized in this mini-review.
