CTCs/DTCs are extremely rare cells and need a sensitive technology in order to enrich them. Magnetic separation using MACS® Technology
allows you to obtain viable populations of circulating tumor cells from small or large volumes of blood or bone marrow easily and rapidly. The isolated cells can then be used for your downstream applications such as flow cytometry, cell culture, or molecular analyses. For even greater convenience you can use the enrichment and detection kits that utilize a unique staining technology to reduce cell loss. If you are studying your own novel markers, you can simply use indirect magnetic labeling for customized cell separation.
