CTC sub-populations

CTC sub-population

Rare CTC sub-populations can be isolated directly from whole blood using the appropriate markers and processed for molecular signatures to identify key drivers of, for example, epithelial-to-mesenchymal transitions that may be associated with spawning metastatic disease.

New microfluidic systems and assays for processing CTC sub-populations and their molecular signatures will be discussed.
