Fast, personalized therapy choices through light-based cell sorting

Cells and biomolecules circulating in our blood carry diagnostic information that, when analyzed, present a key for highly effective tailored therapy concepts. In order to unlock this information, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have developed AnaLighter, a microchip-based sorter. It uses light to detect clinically relevant cells in a blood sample and then carefully isolates them for further analysis. AnaLighter will be presented for the first time at Medtec 2016 in Stuttgart.
