Circulating tumour cells (CTCs) are cancer cells shed from primary tumours into the bloodstream. They can be considered as an indicator of the presence of tumours during early cancer stage. However, the blood-based or liquid biopsy detection of cancer are challenging due to the heterogeneity and small size of CTCs. This technology provides an easy and accurate means of detection.
