Fluidigm Introduces the First Complete Sample-to-Answer Solution for Deep Immune Profiling by Mass Cytometry
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 diseases. In the past two years alone, clinical trials utilizing immune cell profiling have grown by more than 30 percent, with more than 35,000 patients enrolled. The significant diversity of the immune system, however, presents a unique challenge to today’s researchers, who require a more complete view of immune cell populations from each precious sample, better workflow efficiency and greater data reliability than fluorescence-based cytometry provides.
The Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling System was developed to meet this challenge by providing a simple, easy-to-use workflow to profile immune cell populations comprehensively, delivering consistent results from run to run and site to site. Representing the next generation in immune profiling solutions by
“With the increasing number of immune markers required to effectively profile immune populations, a high-parameter approach to immune monitoring is essential,” said Adeeb Rahman, Assistant Professor at the
The highly multiplexed Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling System contains a 30-marker antibody panel that was developed with input from expert immunologists from academia and biopharma to identify and count 37 different immune cell subsets. Provided in a dry format in ready-to-use assay tubes, it enables researchers to easily stain samples and acquire results using the Fluidigm® Helios™ mass cytometry system. Designed for flexibility, the Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling Assay™ allows researchers to add up to seven new antibodies to the panel to support specific study goals. Automated single-cell selection and results reporting is completed in just five minutes using the Maxpar Pathsetter™ software, developed with Verity Software House. The optimized Maxpar Pathsetter report includes the quantitation and frequency of each immune cell population, visual cell maps and innovative in-sample QC metrics.
“The Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling System could transform our understanding of the human immunome,” said
