The SCM (Structuredness of Cytoplasmic Matrix) cancer test, a procedure based on detection of differences in lymphocyte activation between individuals with and without cancer, has remained controversial with inconsistent results reported by different authors. As originally described, the test includes two technically demanding steps, the first a lymphocyte separation procedure and the second a series of fluorescence polarization measurements. The Cellscan, a high-precision static cytometer… CONTINUE READING
