Area of Interest Neuroscience Neuroscience with Imaging Mass Cytometry


See neural tissues clearly

The high heterogeneity and autofluorescence of brain and neural tissue present technical challenges when using conventional imaging techniques to decipher different cell types and intricate spatial relationships in the study of neurodegenerative disease or neuro-oncology.

Imaging Mass Cytometry™ (IMC™) produces clear, easy-to-interpret signals from neural tissue, eliminating autofluorescence interference with metal-labeled antibodies.

Study neurodegeneration spatial complexity in context

Pathological proteins have emerged as a common mechanism for the progression of various neurodegenerative diseases. Discover the spatial distribution of these key proteins in neural tissues using pre-designed IMC panels for the study of neurodegenerative diseases in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sections.



Alzheimer’s disease

Study Alzheimer’s disease and tauopathies or amyloidopathies, such as progressive supranuclear palsy with markers targeting Tau, phosphorylated Tau (pTau) and amyloid precursor protein (APP).

Alzheimer’s Disease IMC Panel

Parkinson’s disease

Study Parkinson’s disease or similar conditions, such as dementia with Lewy bodies with markers targeting αSynuclein (αSyn), phosphorylated αSynuclein (p-αSyn) and tyrosine hydroxylase (TH).

Parkinson’s Disease IMC Panel

Multiple sclerosis

Study multiple sclerosis and other demyelinating disorders of the central nervous system with markers targeting human- and mouse-reactive myelin basic protein (MBP), myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) and pan-axonal neurofilament (NF) protein.

Webinar: Spatial Dissection Of Tumor Immune Microenvironment

Daniela Quail, PhD
Assistant Professor, Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Institute and Department of Physiology, McGill University

Quail describes the use of Imaging Mass Cytometry to understand immune dynamics in tumors – first in the brain tumor microenvironment to identify new cell populations that might help understand tumor biology and second in non-small-cell lung cancer patients to predict recurrence and survival outcomes.
