Sound waves gently cull circulating tumor cells from blood samples

21 julio 2015

The capture and analysis of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) is a valuable tool for cancer treatment decisions and therapy monitoring. Researchers are using sound waves to isolate CTCs without physical contact or damage to the cells, assuring that their original characteristics are maintained. The contact-free nature of the method offers the potential for more precise cancer treatment and monitoring.img src=»» height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
