Light Scattering Flow Cytometry for the Characterization and Quantification of Circulating Breast Cancer Cells.

Polmear, Michael.

Abstract: Circulating tumor cells (CTC) in patient blood samples correlate with poor disease-free survival. The objective was to develop a peripheral blood CTC detection method using microfluidic confocal flow cytometry to discriminate cell types based on differences in backscattered light intensity. Cultured breast cancer cells scattered in a unique, intermediate space relative to the two major l... read more
