CTCs comprise a very rare population among red blood cells and leukocytes, presenting a significant challenge for their detection and evaluation. To overcome this challenge, the requirements of high sensitivity combined with high specificity must be met.
ApoStream® can enrich cells that may be missed by traditional methods, including cells undergoing epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). LEARN MORE
Cells enriched by ApoStream® are fully viable, and can be used in cell culture applications and PDX modeling to gain a greater understanding of an individual patient's disease state. LEARN MORE
ApoStream® enriches CTCs in sufficiently high yield and purity to enable extensive downstream molecular analysis. Copy number variation can be detected by FISH, and mutational analysis can be reliably performed utilizing PCR-based approaches or next generation sequencing.
