Ultra-Deep Phenotyping of Immune Cells
High parameter single-cell analysis by ChipCytometry has proven to be a powerful tool to investigate target selection and validation and to elucidate drug mechanisms of action. Conventional ChipCytomery applications include:
- Deep Cell Immune Cell Phenotyping (>40 parameters)
- Cell Cycle Analysis
- Mode of Action, Target Engagement
- Cell Signaling
- Intracellular Cytokine Secretion
Long-Term Sample Storage and Reinterrogation
The use of conventional flow cytometry in a clinical setting is often limited in terms of sample stability, inter-laboratory variations, inter-operator variability, and instrument drift. ChipCytometry enables sample stability for analysis and reinterrogation for an approximately 24-month period.
ChipCytometry is the only cytometric technology enabling global clinical trial support using a single instrument. The validated automated gating algorithms eliminate unwanted noise from datasets.
Using ZellSafe™ chips, clinical trial samples are biobanked after analysis, enabling the reinterrogation of patient samples after study completion.
Companion Diagnostic Development
Disruptive ChipCytometry helps in identifying predictive biomarkers, developing and deploying diagnostic tests, and engaging the most suitable patient cohorts to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of your therapeutic product(s).
Through our experience, we will help you to avoid obstacles and optimize your path to developing new personalized medicine and companion diagnostics, accelerating the way to decision biomarkers supporting your drug development program.
