Area of Interest Immune Profiling Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling System

Immune Profiling 

With the Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling Assay & Maxpar Pathsetter software

As the first complete sample-to-answer solution for single-cell, high-dimensional immune profiling of human PBMC and whole blood, the Maxpar® Direct™ Immune Profiling Assay™ and Maxpar Pathsetter™ software provide the data quality and reproducibility required to capture the highly individual nature of immune response in health and disease.

Samples stained with the Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling Assay can be fixed, frozen and stored for analysis at a later time or at another location.

Broad adoption by consortia and in clinical research studies

The Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling System has been adopted for use by multiple consortia and in clinical research studies based on its ease of use and reproducibility lot-to-lot, run-to-run and site-to-site. Learn more below about how this comprehensive and reliable approach to immune monitoring is reducing time to results and lowering cost for large studies.
