Fluxion CTC Recovery Kits

Fluxion Biosciences has launched two new kits for enhanced circulating tumor cell isolation and recovery. The kits, which include the Enhanced Recovery Kit and the EMT Kit, are designed to work exclusively with the IsoFlux Liquid Biopsy system. The Enhanced Recovery Kit adds EGFR to the traditional EpCAM antibody, and the EMT Kit includes EpCAM, EGTF, and two proprietary mesenchymal phenotype antibodies. The IsoFlux system uses blood to perform a real-time liquid biopsy of the patient's cancer using the recovered CTCs, the company said.
