The Droplet Biopsy Chip: Towards Capturing Rare Circulating Tumour Cells

In 1869, Thomas Ashworth first observed circulating tumour cells (CTC) in the blood of a man with metastatic cancer using an optical microscope. He postulated that “cells identical with those of cancer itself being seen in the blood may tend to throw some light upon the mode of origin of multiple tumours existing in the same person1.

Dynamic Microenvironments: Finding the right cancer therapy

With so many promising cancer therapies emerging from research labs, a key challenge for biomedical researchers is to develop tools that accurately predict treatment efficacy against a patient’s specific cancer, thereby avoiding subjecting the patient to a trial and error process to find the best drug.

Molecular Diagnostics for the Point of Care

Here, we use the term molecular diagnostics to refer to tests that detect the presence of specific nucleic acids in a clinical specimen such as blood, urine, faeces, saliva, and tissue. These nucleic acids serve, among other things, as biomarkers for the presence of infection-causing pathogens (e.g., DNA and/or RNA from bacteria, virus, and/or parasites); diseases such as cancer (characterised by mutant alleles), and genetic abnormalities.

Microfluidic Droplets on Demand

Active droplet generation in microfluidics is of high interest for a wide range of applications such as single cell analysis, DNA sequencing and nanoparticle synthesis to name a few.

Comparing and contrasting publications and patents

University faculty and their research teams are constantly pushing the frontiers of science and engineering in their laboratories. Their research is often funded by government sources (e.g. The National Institutes of Health, The National Science Foundation), private entities (e.g. Scientific Philanthropy Alliance), or by the respective universities themselves.

Shaping Fluids with Freestyle Fluidics

Microfluidics has obvious potential, and this is fuelling the exponential growth of the numbers of researchers and applications in this emerging field. But there has been surprisingly little uptake of microfluidic platforms into the workflows that most biologist use. Why?
