2017 SLAS INNOVATION AWARD WINNER

Liquid Biopsy: New Technology Uses a Microfluidic Vortex to Isolate Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) from Blood Samples

Early in her career, Elodie Sollier-Christen, Ph.D. was trying to decide whether to study medicine or engineering when she learned about lab-on-a-chip concepts and recalls, “I found these concepts really exciting and I thought they would be the future of medicine.” Fast forward to 2017. The now chief scientific officer for Vortex Biosciences earned the 2017 SLAS Innovation Award winner for her presentation, “Classification of Large Circulating Tumor Cells Isolated with Ultra-High-Throughput Microfluidic Vortex Technology,” built from those early interests.
