Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling Assay and Maxpar Pathsetter software
Introducing the first complete sample-to-answer solution for single-cell high-dimensional immune profiling of human PBMC and whole blood, the Maxpar® Direct™ Immune Profiling Assay™ and Maxpar Pathsetter™ software. Each provides the data quality and reproducibility required to capture the highly individual nature of immune response in health and disease.
No CyTOF? No problem.
We can help you convert your fluorescence panel and find a service provider.
The technical details: populations, clones and workflows
Designed as a simple single-tube workflow, the system brings together CyTOF® technology on the CyTOF XT™ and Helios™ mass cytometry systems, a dry-format 30-marker antibody panel and automated Maxpar Pathsetter software, enabling identification of 37 immune cell populations.

Samples stained with the Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling Assay can be fixed, frozen and stored for analysis at a later time or at another location.
With over 2,000 publications and 200 clinical trials, CyTOF® flow cytometry and tissue imaging can be used for a variety of immune and non-immune related diseases. Here we narrow in on an emerging area for high-parameter cytometry.
Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) cell therapy is a promising breakthrough to significantly improve the management and treatment of cancer. Yet there is much to understand about resistance, toxicity, limited CAR T cell expansion and inadequate persistence in order to gain a stronger foothold in the clinic.
Going beyond the limitations of fluorescence, CyTOF flow cytometry enables simultaneous characterization of CAR cell phenotyping and immune response in a single assay for highly reliable and reproducible results essential for longitudinal, multicenter and clinical trial studies.
Proven performance and reproducibility
The reproducibility of the Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling System has been demonstrated run-to-run and site-to-site.1,2
