LOC article on the capture of tumour cells featured in the press

A combined micromagnetic-microfluidic device for rapid capture and culture of rare circulating tumor cellsAn article recently published in Lab on a Chip on the capture and culture of rare circulating tumour cells from Donald Ingber and Joo Kang has featured on CNET and PhysOrg.  The device, which the team describes as a ‘micromagnetic-microfluidic device’ is capable of separating almost 90% of circulating tumour cells from blood by binding them to magnetic beads.  Due to the design of the channels in the device, the CTCs remain viable following isolation and can be used further for culture and testing.
