Nanocomposite scaffold for the in vitro isolation of cells

 

The present invention is directed to devices, methods and kits for cell-specific sorting of cells from a mixed population, e.g., from a tumor sample. Aspects of the invention combine aligned, electrospun microfibers with drug-or protein-releasing nanospheres to isolate cancer cells from tumor biopsies.
