Novel device captures moment of tumour metastases.

A microfluidic device developed at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) may help study key steps in the process by which cancer cells break off from a primary tumour to invade other tissues and form metastases. The investigators have developed a stands for epithelial-mesenchymal transition, a fundamental change in cellular characteristics that has been associated with the ability of tumour cells to
