Future Perspectives

CytoTrack analysis published in Nature Communications

Since CytoTrack is an open system, several research groups are experimenting with novel CTC markers. In a recent paper by Agerbæk et al (2018) published in Nature Communication, a group led by Ali Salanti of VAR2 Pharmaceuticals demonstrated identification of CTCs with the rVAR2 marker using the CytoTrack system. This demonstrates the impressive flexibility of CytoTrack in terms of using novel markers for isolation of CTCs.
