Methods and Devices for Capturing Circulating Tumor Cells
A method of capturing a Circulating Tumor Cell (CTC) from a sample includes introducing a sample into a microfluidic device having a cell capture surface and a flow modification surface under conditions that allow a CTC to bind to a cell rolling-inducing agent and a capturing agent disposed on the cell capture surface. The flow modification surface induces a rotational flow within the sample as it flows through the microfluidic device.
