In order to improve patient treatment, scientists are always searching for better, faster, and cheaper ways of doing things. Microfluidic chips are becoming increasingly popular in medicine due to their advanced capabilities and low cost. In this research highlight, we look at a paper by Peterson et al. in which they develop a microfluidic method utilizing ascites fluid from ovarian cancer patients that can very sensitively detect and characterize the tumor cells present in the fluid oftentimes drained from these patients. The technology has numerous possibilities in clinical oncology and beyond.
