Advancing human health and disease research with mass cytometry

Mass cytometry is a powerful research tool for elucidating the mechanisms underlying human disease and assessing treatment efficacy. Enabling high parameter studies through modular panel design, mass cytometry has quickly become a mainstay at multiple immune monitoring core facilities and translational research laboratories around the world.

In this tutorial, Sean Bendall, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Pathology at the Stanford University School of Medicine, will discuss:

  • Basic principles of mass cytometry (CyTOF® technology).
  • Use of the technology in both low-plex (15–25 parameters)and high plex (>30 parameters) research studies.
  • Application examples for immune profiling as well as intracellular cytokine and signaling protein analysis.

Noah Saederup, PhD, of Fluidigm will provide an overview of Maxpar® reagents for mass cytometry, with special focus on modular panel kits. These kits:

  • Identify all major human and mouse leukocyte populations.
  • Expand leukocyte analysis to include cell cycle, intracellular cytokine expression or signaling status.
  • Enable deep profiling of human T cell populations including expression of key checkpoint molecules.
