Capturing of circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) from the peripheral blood of patients (a.k.a. liquid biopsy) can potentially lead to applications in cancer diagnosis and personalized medicine.   Using a label-free approach via our developed microfluidic biochips, we not only show successful detection and retrieval of CTCs, but also how selective capturing of each single CTCs can lead to downstream single cell analysis and enable personalized treatment through the detection of specific actionable or druggable mutation.
