Microfluidic Device Separates Circulating Tumor Cells by Size to Help Spot Cancer
Feb 28, 2019 @ 15:48

Existing technologies for spotting CTCs can be prohibitively expensive, but the new device is cheap to produce and since molecular tags are not used there’s no need for a lab tech to prepare the sample. It works on the principles of inertial migration and shear-induced diffusion, forcing cells of different size to move towards different locations within the liquid as it moves through the device.
