Single Cell Technologies and their Fields of Application (Tumor Cells)

With ‘Trends in Single Cell Analysis #9’ we will continue our event format ‘Life Science Innovation’, which provides insights into innovative research topics and current developments in Duesseldorf, NRW and beyond.

We are thrilled to welcome experts from various fields to discuss cutting-edge advancements in liquid biopsy with a focus on circulating tumor cells (CTCs). Avanish Mishra from Harvard Medical School will present their new microfluidic technologies to isolate and molecularly profile CTCs from whole Diagnostic leukapheresis products generated from several litres
of blood and will discuss the clinical implications of this advancement.

Amin El-Heliebi from the Medical University Graz will share invaluable insights into his work on liquid biopsies, focusing on their technologies to evaluate CTCs and circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) in advanced prostate cancer. His research aims to unravel the complexities of metastatic disease by tracing liquid biopsies back to their originating tumor mass, offering unprecedented opportunities for early detection and intervention.

Lastly, Jurij Kintz from Sartorius will introduce the innovative CellCelector Flex system, designed to detect and micromanipulate single CTCs with unparalleled precision.
