3D printing cell traps to separate out cancer cells

Written by Daniel Barrett

Recent research has led to designing 3D-printed cell traps that separate white blood cells from red blood cells, thus exposing cancer cells found within the blood. The findings could pave the way for personalized cancer treatments. The latest findings from the Georgia Institute of Technology (GA, USA) have led to the design of 3D-printed cell traps that trap and separate white blood cells from red blood cells. This allows for the exposure of tumor cells found within the blood, as they are the same size as white blood cells. Thus, earlier diagnosis of cancer could be possible, which could lead...
