Fluxion Biosciences IsoFlux EMT Enrichment Kit

Fluxion Biosciences has introduced the IsoFlux EMT Enrichment Kit for the isolation of rare circulating tumor cells from blood samples. The new kit works with the company's IsoFlux System and specifically targets cells with both epithelial and mesenchymal properties. Fluxion noted that mesenchymal properties have typically not been addressed in other CTC capture systems. The kits are available for immediate use through the IsoFlux Discovery Services program, with kit shipments to IsoFlux customers starting in the third quarter of 2015, the company said.
