Gilupi-Product Picture

Individual oncological targeted therapies will become more and more important in tomorrow’s personalized medicine. The identification of the right drug for the specific patient is the upcoming challenge. To address this medical need, the application of the GILUPI CellCollector™ enriches rare cells (circulating tumor cells- CTCs) by directly “fishing” them in the patient’s bloodstream. By using special diagnostic analyses, these isolated cells can be characterized and/or analyzed at a molecular level. Thus, statements regarding the current status of the disease or/and the prognosis can be made. In addition, the physician is able to adjust the treatment immediately and optimize the therapy of the patient.

The GILUPI CellCollector™ is the first in vivo CTC isolation product worldwide with CE approval.
