High Speed, High Recovery of Immune Cells Prepared From Whole Blood Using the MARS Sample Preparation System

Blood immune cell flow cytometry analysis is a standard practice in both research and clinical labs. The immune cell preparation from whole blood samples normally requires multiple manual cell washing steps with centrifugation.The process can be tedious, labor intensive, time consuming, and inconsistent. We developed a new sample preparation MARS system, using an acoustic active-microfluidic […]

Rare Cancer Cell Isolation From Whole Blood Using the MARS Cell Separation System

Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are cancer cells shed from tumors and circulate in the bloodstream. These cells are considered to be a biomarker which potentially has high value in cancer diagnosis and cancer drug development. However, because of the extremely low frequency of CTC in peripheral blood, which is typically as low as less than […]
