Translational and Clinical Research
Mass cytometry and Imaging Mass Cytometry use is expanding in clinical research trials
CyTOF® technology has been adopted for use in dozens of clinical research trials around the world to investigate multiple areas of human disease to understand and improve prevention and therapeutics.
- 50-plus unique markers per panel maximize information from every precious patient sample.
- Cells stained with metal-tagged antibodies can be frozen, stored and shipped reliably.
- Panels are easier to adjust to accommodate new findings than those that are fluorescence-based.
- Multiple publications prove that CyTOF assays and instruments provide reliable and reproducible results.
The use of mass cytometry and Imaging Mass Cytometry™ in clinical trials continues to steadily grow and be standardized across trials related to cancer immunotherapies.

National Clinical Trials citing CyTOF technology by research area
*Includes allergy, cardiac disease, pulmonary disease and stem cell
The beauty of CyTOF is that you can ask complex questions from one tube of cells or one sample of cells. From one patient sample, we can look at leukemia cells, the T cell compartment, other surrounding cell types and how these cells interact. ”

- Whole blood
- Bone marrow
- Tissue digests
- Tumor digests
Stain, store, barcode
- Stain samples at multiple sites or on different days.
- Store, freeze and ship samples to a centralized location.
- Barcode samples to combine in a single tube.
Analyze samples on CyTOF XT™ or Helios™ to measure 50 or more proteins in a single cell.
