Circulating Tumor Cells: A New Aid for Cancer Diagnosis

‘The ability of CTCs to reflect molecular features of diseased cells is being utilized by players working on tools for cancer diagnosis’, says RNCOS.


Noida, UP -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/07/2014 -- Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are malignant cells that originate from primary or metastatic tumors and are found in the peripheral blood. Recently, it has been demonstrated that these CTCs reflect molecular features of cells within the tumor masses, providing live information about the patient’s disease status. Market players are investing millions of dollars in R&D to research new devices for capturing CTCs. In a recent development, Fluxion Biosciences introduced an instrument to isolate rare CTCs. Using their proprietary microfluidic technology, the IsoFlux system processes CTCs, which are optimized for downstream molecular testing, such as real-time PCR, next-generation sequencing, and immunoassays.
