How the Parsortix System Works
CTCs are caught on a step that criss-crosses the microscope slide sized cassette.
Captured cells can be fixed and stained in the cassette to allow in-cassette identification and enumeration…
or alternatively can be recovered (harvested) to allow external staining and/or genetic analyses such as qPCR or sequencing
The Parsortix system is CE marked for use as an in vitro diagnostic device in the EU.
The system is available for research purposes in the US, but does not have FDA approval for clinical purposes.
