Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0049391A1] A method of and system for detecting and analyzing rare cells in a mixed population of cells carried by a carrier (10). The method is effected by (a) using an automatic or semi-automatic optical scanning system (30) for morphologically identifying the rare cells on the carrier (10), to thereby obtain identified rare cells of knows locations; and (b) chemically, biochemically and/or genetically analyzing the identified rare cells.
