Chemotherapy Sensitivity and Resistance Assays:
The Microculture Kinetics (MiCK) Assay for Apoptosis — Helps oncologist discriminate between effective and ineffective chemotherapeutic agents prior to their use in a patient’s treatment. MiCK assay helps oncologists to create an individual treatment protocol that includes a drug or drug combination that is most effective in killing tumor cells of an individual patient.
