Researchers at the University of the Basque Country are developing a smart polymer-coated device that can non-invasively capture and release cancer cells using electric measurements, as part of an effort to develop universal platforms for early cancer screening. The approach, outlined in the book ‘Microfluidic Systems for Cancer Diagnosis’, could improve traditional cell collection methods, which are typically labour-intensive and can damage cells. The device could eventually be used to build ‘organ-on-a-chip’ systems.
