Technical Seminar: Mass Cytometry for Highly Multiplexed Analysis
December 3, 2019
About this Event
You are invited to this lunchtime seminar on CyTOF technology.
Abstract: Revealing cellular variations in perceived homogenous populations has become crucial to characterizing immune responses, understanding cancer cells, tracking stem cell lineage, and studying the effectiveness of biological therapies. Additionally, the need for antibody-based high parameter protein analysis is underscored by its capacity to identify rare and previously uncharacterized cell populations. This ability has far reaching implications in both basic research and into translational research.
Daniel Frederick, PhD, Mass Cytometry Application Scientist
Eric Swanson, PhD, Imaging Mass Cytometry Application Scientist
In this seminar:
(a) we will describe the principles of the Helios™, CyTOF® mass cytometry system, the utility of high parameter analysis, and highlight ground-breaking research made possible with mass cytometry.
(b) we will describe the principles and workflow of the Hyperion™ Tissue Imaging System, and highlight ground-breaking research made possible with imaging mass cytometry.
