Simple. Powerful. Fast.
Immune System Monitoring with CyTOF

You need answers from every cell in each precious patient sample, and you need them quickly, reliably.

Mass cytometry, powered by CyTOF® technology, can expedite COVID-19 therapeutic and vaccine research studies with best-in-class, highly multiplexed, longitudinal immune monitoring capability.

Faster and more cost-efficient than single-cell RNA-seq, CITE-seq or AbSeq, mass cytometry also provides deeper resolution of immune cell phenotype and function than any flow cytometry or spectral cytometry system.

And CyTOF does it all in a single tube.

Webinar: Uncovering Immunological Mechanisms of Protection from Infection and Vaccination in Humans

In this presentation, Marcelo B. Sztein, MD, shows examples of his group’s use of mass cytometry to help advance the fields of vaccine development and pathogen-host interactions. He provides an in-depth look at his studies of Salmonella typhi (S. typhi), the causative agent of typhoid fever, an infectious disease of great public health importance.
