Wiretapping cancer

Imagine you could track cancer's every move

and confidently select the best treatment at any time

Imagine not having to guess

Every cancer is different
and constantly changing

Even the best diagnostic tests can't tell you which therapy will work, when the tests are hampered by tumor samples that are no longer representative,

...or never were.

Introducing the flow biopsy

An intravenous wire that collects cancer cells as they flow through the blood stream.

The process is simple, pain free, works with existing catheters and only takes a few hours.

Select the best possible treatment, all the time

Flow biopsies provide reliable cancer samples safely and pain free, making frequent and accurate diagnoses a reality.

Be confident in always using the right therapy.

No more guessing.

Biopsies compared

How are flow biopsies different from the traditional tissue biopsy and liquid biopsies?

Tissue biopsies are reliable but risky

A tissue biopsy extracts a piece of (hopefully) tumor tissue, which can be used to determine the type and stage of cancer. For more advanced treatments, a biopsy is often required to determine the molecular profile of the cancer and predict if that treatment will be effective.

Liquid biopsies are safe but noisy

A liquid biopsy uses a blood sample instead of tumor tissue. Drawing blood is certainly much safer, simpler, and faster than taking tissue biopsy, but a blood sample does not contain nearly enough cancer material, and analyzing that is difficult and is often hampered by biological noise.

Flow biopsies provide a better sample

Instead of drawing a blood sample, flow biopsies use medical wires inserted into the bloodstream to directly collect the cancer cells. A specialized coating captures the circulating cancer cells that flow by, accumulating many more cells over time than there would ever be in a single blood sample.

Great Cancer Therapy Relies on Accurate Tumor Samples

An overview of current traditional tissue and liquid biopsy methods, with a focus on non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is discussed. In order to provide the correct treatment for cancer patients, companion diagnostic tests are required by the FDA for certain medications prior to being prescribed. These tests have to be performed on a patient's tumor sample. Tissue biopsies are the gold standard method for acquiring tumor tissue, however they are highly invasive and inaccurate. Liquid biopsies are becoming more popular, but the technology still poses several limitations.
