New Technologies and Devices for Cancer Diagnosis

Wei Ruxue


For almost all cancers, the chances of survival are significantly increased if the disease is detected, diagnosed and treated at an early stage. This has triggered scientists to innovate methods for early cancer diagnosis and cancer cell analysis. Detection of exosomes, an important mediator of intracellular communication in cancer cells, is difficult because of several factors. These include expensive equipment, low sensitivity, and complicated procedures. Cell sieving based on tumor cell size is simple and effective, but there is a "fluid dead space" between the pores in the filtration process, which is prone to clogging and inconsistent cell filtration. In this paper, we introduce the latest tumor cell screening and collection tools. These new techniques are valuable for early diagnosis of cancer, guidance
