Detection of circulating tumor cells in blood has become an invaluable tool in the clinical diagnosis and monitoring of various cancers.  CTCs are rare, fragile and susceptible to degradation, which may immediately occur from the time of sample collection and prior to its arrival in clinical diagnostic laboratories.  Thus, a persistent critical need exists in the research, diagnostics and therapeutics fields for methods that improve cell integrity and longevity of CTCs.
