“We are excited about this partnership and committed to harnessing the full power of mass cytometry technology to advance biomarker discovery and accelerate the development of innovative new medicines and diagnostics,” said Professor
As the first CoE for IMC in
To be housed in SIgN’s premises at Biopolis, Singapore’s biomedical research hub, the new CoE will serve as a regional platform for scientific innovation, training, and services in mass cytometry and IMC and accelerate innovation in new product development and pre-commercial product testing.
“A key application of Imaging Mass Cytometry in clinical translational research will be to reveal the immune landscape of tumors to influence therapeutic strategies and interventions in immunotherapy,” said Associate Professor
“As a market leader in highly multiplexed imaging, we see this new CoE as an important milestone in our strategy to accelerate global adoption by providing greater access to new customers in
About Imaging Mass Cytometry
Imaging Mass Cytometry is setting a new standard in tissue imaging, significantly simplifying high-multiplex panel design and eliminating the impact of tissue autofluorescence by using highly pure metal tags for which signals are separated by mass instead of by wavelength. Incorporating an easy-to-use immunohistochemistry workflow that simultaneously detects many proteins in a single scan, IMC is ideal for uncovering new insights in health and disease and empowering the development of better diagnostics and more effective therapies.
