    Abstract

    In this study, we have developed ionic current detection device that can discriminate cells by measurement of cell deformability for detecting circulating tumor cells (CTC). We successfully discriminated CTC model from leukocyte model without any fluorescent labels by using the device. Moreover, we could detect relatively small CTCs compared to blood cells, which are difficult to detect by conventional filter devices. This device is expected as a new cancer diagnostic device that is simple and highly sensitive.
