CytoRecovery: Fast Facts


Samples of specific cell types are critical to study, diagnose and treat diseases like cancer and develop new therapeutics and vaccines.

But we need to sort and recover living cells from tumors and other tissue samples, especially rare cell types.

Introducing the next generation of cell recovery technology: CytoRecovery


The CytoRecovery Setup

We’ve developed a benchtop, commercial product system based on licensed Virginia Tech technology.

  • Cell separator chips
  • Chip holder
  • Frequency generator
  • Proprietary Reagents
  • Software for system control and sample analysis 

No new instrumentation is required for set-up; the system costs a fraction of the price of current platforms.
