Abstract

We developed non-labeling detection and easy separation method of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) based on CTCs' specific properties. Our developed method requires no special apparatus and tedious pretreatment before separation and detection of CTCs. In addition, our methods can also separate and detect epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) negative CTCs, which cannot be attained by present methods. Therefore, our method would become accurate CTCs' analysis method and useful for point-of-care testing of CTCs.
