The core Parsortix technology comprises a separation device that enables particles suspended in a fluid to be captured with a high degree of selectivity, allowing the fluid medium itself and other suspended particles to pass through the device.
The captured particles can then be manipulated or processed for other purposes. Applications currently under development include:
- prenatal diagnostics: capture of fetal cells from whole peripheral maternal blood
- oncology: capture of cancer cells from circulating blood
- stem cells: isolation of stem cells from patient samples
- bacteria: isolation of bacteria from patient samples
