Project: Capturing Scarce Circulating Tumor Cells to Unlock Precision Medicine in Metastatic Cancer

Acronym CAPTER (Reference Number: 113497)
Duration 01/10/2019 - 03/10/2022
Project Topic We will develop a medical device, CAPTER, to monitor changed cancer drug sensitivity during treatment. CAPTER consist of a flexible wire with proprietary cell-capturing features to collect scarce circulating tumor cells CTCs from the bloodstream. By placing CAPTER in a central vein through the catheter of a patient, we capture and release live CTCs for analysis. This radically innovative approach enables minimally invasive and accurate tumor monitoring, unlocking precision medicine in cancer.
