Development of a quantum-dot-labelled magnetic immunoassay method for circulating colorectal cancer cell detection.

AIM To detect of colorectal cancer (CRC) circulating tumour cells (CTCs) surface antigens, we present an assay incorporating cadmium selenide quantum dots (QDs) in these paper. METHODS The principle of the assay is the immunomagnetic separation of CTCs from body fluids in conjunction with QDs, using specific antibody biomarkers: epithelial cell adhesion… CONTINUE READING
