51_19b/2012Back Cover: Sensitive and High-Throughput Isolation of Rare Cells from Peripheral Blood with Ensemble-Decision Aliquot Ranking (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 19/2012)

A blood sample was broken up into nanoliter volumes, and subsequently each aliquot was ranked based on whether or not a rare cell was present in the ensemble of cells within the aliquot. This approach is called ensemble decision aliquot ranking (eDAR). In their Communication on page 4618 ff., D. T. Chiu et al. show that the eDAR technique is well-suited for the enrichment of rare cells, such as circulating tumor cells.
