Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are considered precursors to metastasis. They mirror tumor heterogeneity and can be found in the bloodstream as either single CTCs or clusters. Non-invasive liquid biopsies from patient blood samples can provide insight into the biological and molecular characteristics of the primary tumor, as well as the different tumor phenotypes present, enabling optimization of treatment strategies and improved patient outcomes. However, numerous issues complicate accurate CTC characterization, including low circulating numbers in the blood, diminished viability, cell loss during enrichment, and white blood cell contamination.
In this webinar brought to you by Sartorius, Darius Cameron Wilson will highlight the utility of the CellCelector platform for isolating a wide range of CTCs subtypes, drawing from the extensive literature evidence base.
Topics to be covered
- How the CellCelector automated cell isolation and transfer platform addresses the traditional challenges of rare cell isolation and enrichment
- Rapid identification, characterization, and transfer of single CTCs or clusters
- Identification and transfer of rare cells using custom developed consumables, powerful imaging and image analysis, and gentle single cell or cluster transfer
