Sound waves could provide ‚liquid biopsies‘

Using sound waves, researchers have developed a gentle, contact-free method for separating circulating tumor cells from blood samples that is fast and efficient enough for clinical use. The ability to quickly and efficiently harvest and grow these cells from a blood sample would enable ‚liquid biopsies‘ capable of providing individualized diagnosis, prognosis and suggestions for treatment strategies.
