Nanotechnology allows scientists to capture and preserve cancer cells circulating in the bloodstream
from RIKEN via Phys.org
Scientists from the RIKEN Advanced Science Institute in Japan and UCLA report a new nanoscale velcrolike device that captures and releases tumor cells that have broken away from primary tumors and are circulating in the bloodstream. This new nanotechnology could be used for cancer diagnosis and give insight into the mechanisms of how cancer spreads throughout the body.
