The article discusses the benefits and limitations on a circulating tumor cell (CTC) test that are required to fulfill an unmet need in oncology clinical trials and disease management practices. It informs about CellSearch System by Veridex LLC which is designed to enrich and enumerate CTCs in metastatic cancers. It mentions that CTC test is an antibody-independent system and causes minimal cell losses with high recovery and high purity.
