The VTX-1 doesn’t just make small improvements, it changes the way CTCs can be isolated.

Vortex Biosciences’ CSO Elodie Sollier-Christen won the SLAS 2017 Innovation Award for her presentation on the VTX-1 Liquid Biopsy System. See her describe the transition from a lab scale technology to the latest innovation in CTC isolation.
CTCs are rare cells, so a cell recovery of > 70% means finding CTCs in a higher number in more patients. See our poster on Prostate Cancer to learn more.
Higher Purity Means
Typically <100WBCs/mL of blood processed are captured resulting in more sensitive assays. See our sequencing application note to learn more.
Intact and Viable CTCs
CTCs captured are minimally affected by the isolation process. See our application note on Mouse Models where you can see intact CTC clusters. See our application note to learn more.
Capture CTCs Without Labels
CTCs are captured based on their size and deformability, meaning capture is not biased by molecular characteristics. See our technology overview to learn more.
CTCs in <1 Hour With NO
Faster CTC capture means higher throughput and cellular expression levels are less likely to change.See our VTX-1Product Brochure to learn more.
Meet Your Needs
With the ability to process 0.2 mL mouse samples and 16 mL patient samples on the same instrument, the VTX-1 was designed for cancer research. See our application notes to see the range of assays supported.
The Vortex Cartridge was designed to make your CTC isolation simple. Attach your blood tube to the self-contained, one-time-use cartridge, add a container for the captured CTCs to be collected into and place the cartridge in the VTX-1. The system does the rest! Blood is automatically diluted and processed in the cartridge. At the end of your experiment, you will have your CTCs collected in just a 300 uL volume in your choice of an Eppendorf tube, well strip, slide chamber or petri dish. The sample flow through is collected in a 50 mL conical for reprocessing if needed.
The VTX-1 Liquid Biopsy System provides the flexibility to meet your research needs. Captured CTCs are flushed out of the Vortex Cartridge into a container of your choice. Depending on your downstream processing, you can choose to collect the cells in an Eppendorf tube, well strip, slide chamber or petri dish. This CTC Collection Kit provides you everything you need to attach your container of interest to the CTC Cartridge and begin to take the next step in your cancer research!
