More than 100 Academic, Pharmaceutical and Biotech Companies Select Maxpar Immune Profiling Panels Using CyTOF Technology to Accelerate Translational and Clinical Research
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Nov. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fluidigm Corporation (NASDAQ:FLDM) today announced it has exceeded $1 million in revenue from its industry-leading Maxpar® Direct™ Immune Profiling Assay™ and Maxpar Human Immune Monitoring Panel Kit. Used by more than 100 academic, pharmaceutical and biotech companies globally, these immune profiling panels enable researchers to detect changes in immune cell populations using 29 or more protein markers with rapid five-minute results reporting.
Immune profiling is essential for the identification of meaningful prognostic and diagnostic biomarker signatures and the development of new therapies for cancer, inflammatory conditions and auto-immune and other diseases. Enabling researchers to uncover new insights in the human immune repertoire in health and disease, the highly multiplexed Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling Assay delivers highly reproducible performance with a simple, easy-to-use workflow.
“We are using the Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling panel to measure immunophenotypic changes in response to a novel immunotherapy,” said Lorinda Turner, PhD, Senior Research Associate from the University of Cambridge. “The easy, single-tube workflow has simplified the integration of highly multiplexed immune profiling into our multi-site clinical trial design and will enable us to gain greater insight into the immune landscape of major depressive disorder and identify biomarkers of treatment response.”
“Customers have rapidly adopted the Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling Assay and its predecessor, the Maxpar Human Immune Monitoring Panel Kit, to advance their work,” said Chris Linthwaite, President and CEO of Fluidigm. “By delivering on our strategy to provide simple, end-to-end human immune profiling workflows that harness the power of CyTOF® technology, we have been able to stimulate broader integration of mass cytometry into a number of translational and clinical research studies.”
