Daniel Chiu, Ph.D A.Bruce Montgomery Professor of Chemistry University of Washington "Rare cells present in blood, such as circulating tumor cells, can be difficult to isolate, but they may be important both in a clinical setting as well as for gaining a better understanding of metastasis. This presentation will describe a method we developed for isolating rare cells and circulating tumor cells from peripheral blood, with emphasis on device design and a set of probes that we have developed to enhance our ability to detect and isolate these rare cells. We will describe the performance of this system as well as its clinical utility."
