Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are the “seed and soil” for cancer metastases development, which is responsible for >90% of cancer-related deaths. Current chapter review the recent development of hybrid graphene oxide based nanotechnology, mainly from authors own contributions, which can be used for selective detection and separation of different types of CTCs from infected blood. CTCs separation has been performed using magnetic field and CTCs mapping has been performed using two photon and single photon fluorescence spectroscopy.
