Our Capture of Circulating Tumor Cells on Silicon Substrates Technology is in Angew

Finding a needle in a haystack: Our new technology is demonstrated to enrich circulating tumor cells (CTCs) with high efficiency by integrating an antibody-coated silicon nanopillar (SiNP, see picture; gray) substrate with an overlaid polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) microfluidic chaotic mixer (turquoise). It shows significantly improved sensitivity in detecting rare CTCs from whole blood, thus providing an alternative for monitoring cancer progression.

This work got us the cover.
