Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and disseminated tumors cells (DTCs) are difficult to detect and enrich. Therefore, sensitive methods for sucessful downstream experiments are of great interest. Miltenyi Biotec has created an innovative line of products for CTC/DTC enrichment and detection from whole blood, buffy coat, or PBMCs.
Analysis of rare cells can be greatly improved by magnetic pre-enrichment. The MACSQuant Analyzer 10facilitates both automated enrichment and flow cytometric analysis. This allows the rapid and reproducible identification, quantification, and characterization of CTCs.
