Mutations in the epithelial growth factor receptor (EGFR) are thought to occur early in the oncogenesis of non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). This paper describes the use of a novel chip to capture circulating tumour cells (CTCs) combined with a “SARMS” (Scorpion Amplification Refractory Mutation System) allele-specific genotyping assay to detect EGFR mutations.
