A high throughput one-step assay for circulating tumor cell detection in whole blood sample

Technology Area: Medical Devices

Commercial Maturity: Prototype

Abstract: In contrast to traditional antibody-mediated detection methods, our new assay system employs a unique tumor cell-activation aptamer-reporter, which can selectively target and highlight circulating tumor cells in one-step reaction. This high throughput assay is highly sensitive and can detect tumor cells in a drop of whole blood sample within minutes.
