According to numerous studies FACS can obtain cancer cells from brain gliomas, prostate cancer, breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, liver cancer etc.
Molecular imaging, BLI (bioluminescence imaging), PET (Positron Emission Tomography), MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) can also be used for quantifying and characterizing the biological process at a molecular and cellular level amongst living subjects.
