We offer bio-process measurement, model and control.
Measurements and signal analysis in real-time. A typical setup include:
Circulating Tumor Cells Detector
Challenge Finding a more flexible and lower cost detection system for the very rare circulating tumor cells (1 to 10/billion cells), which are tumor cells circulating in the blood that are shed from tumors and can be the seeds of secondary tumors, so they may provide a wealth of information on metastatic mechanisms, disease progression, and treatment susceptibility.
Solution Splitting the macroscopic blood sample into picoliter-nanoliter droplets containing single cells using a system based on CompactRIO that helps detect circulating tumour cells (CTCs) by analyzing pH changes and/or lactate production in the extracellular compartment of individual cells without the need for surface-antigen labelling, which enables viable CTCs to be isolated for further characterization.
