Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are detached primary cancer cells found in the circulatory system that are implicated in the metastasis of cancer. Herr and collaborators have developed a microfluidic western blot for an 8-plex protein panel for individual CTCs, derived from estrogen receptor positive breast cancer patients, that advances the state of the art in CTC characterization with tiny sample sizes.
