Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are cancer cells that travel within the bloodstream and can lead to metastasis. We developed a device that effectively captures large quantities of CTCs; these devices can be used in lieu of invasive and painful biopsies during diagnosis for treatment management and for further cell research.
