Scientists develop a device that differentiates, in a single step and without markers, tumour cells from healthy cells

A CSIC team has designed a method and a device that differentiates, in a single analysis, different cells or particles present in a fluid. The prototype has been tested, and the results have been published and featured on the cover of ACS Sensors. The system has been patented and now the scientific team is looking for companies interested in a license agreement for its commercial exploitation.
