Out today! New tool for everyone interested in immune monitoring using mass cytometry (#CyTOF). Provides a comprehensive reference panel to identify major immune cell lineages, functional subsets and checkpoint molecule expression.

Some highlights below:

No more spending several months to establish a panel! Our workflow is ready-to-go, consists of
commercially available reagents (@fluidigm) and is already titrated. Using this backbone, >98% of peripheral blood cells can be clearly identified by positivity for >4 antigens

More:
We further validated our approach by flow cytometry and across various research centers. Also, works comparable on both live and pre-fixed cells. Did we miss your favorite marker or you have a specific hypothesis? Can easily be extended with 10+ surface and intracellular markers
