Rapid Isolation and Identification of Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) from Whole Blood using Lithographically Fabricated Microfilters
Cha-Mei Tang, President and CEO, Creatv MicroTech

We developed lithographically fabricated microfilters with high precision pore dimensions and high porosity. They are strong, transparent and non-fluorescent with 160,000 pores. Breast cancer cell lines, MCF-7, SKBR3 and MB453, were used to evaluate the assay performance. Enumerated cells were spiked into 7.5 mL whole human blood and mixed with 7.5 mL of fixation solution. Spiked samples were drawn by negative pressure at a flow rate of ~10 mL/min. The cells captured on the filter were fixed,
