Introducing the  ClearCell® FX System - the next generation label-free cancer cell enrichment platform.

The  ClearCell® FX System is driven by the  CTChip® FR - a microfluidic biochip which can enrich viable Circulating Tumour Cells (CTCs)from patient blood. This novel technology uses inertial focusing principle to separate the larger target cells from the smaller blood cells and is entirely label-free.

This non-antibody approach enables capture of a wider range of CTCs, which typically express different cell-surface biomarkers, to be isolated and retrieved.

The enriched CTCs can then be analysed by a variety of pathology and molecular diagnostic techniques such as fluorescence in-situ hybridisation (FISH), quantitative polymerase chain reaction (Q-PCR) and next-generation sequencing (NGS) as well as cell culture.

Features

  • Label-free enrichment of CTCs from patient blood
  • Automated workflow
  • Easy integration with downstream molecular diagnostics and pathology assays 
  • Wholly intact and viable CTCs
  • Up to 10,000X enrichment of CTCs


CTChip® FR

The CTChip® FR uses inherent Dean vortex flows present in curvilinear channels, termed Dean Flow Fractionation (DFF), to isolate CTCs based on size and inertia, relative to other blood components. 

Through the process of DFF, blood cells separate and distribute themselves within the channels, with the larger cells along the inner wall and the smaller cells away from the inner wall, thereby producing an effective and rapid separation without compromising on the quality of retrieved cells.
