The foundations of cancer start as a complex interplay between environmental exposure to carcinogens and inherited susceptibility. As cancers progress, heterogeneity increases, creating rare treatment resistant sub-clones with mutational profiles extending beyond even the broadest cancer panels. Without accurately determining how the unique mutations within rare sub-clones affect gene expression and cell function, translational discoveries won’t make it from the bench to the bedside.
You can now unravel cancer complexity by analyzing individual cancer cells at the DNA, RNA, and Protein level, and challenge single-cells with functional studies to determine their biological function. By studying cancer from every angle, you can discover novel biomarkers, build accurate panels, and evaluate the effects of immunotherapy on individual cells.
By enabling single-cell genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and functional studies, Fluidigm’s Ideal Lab creates new approaches for cancer breakthroughs. Join us in the Ideal Lab at AACR 2015 booth #763 to learn how you can study cancer from every angle, and rapidly take your research from bench to bedside.
With Fluidigm, Cancer complexity is only in the biology.
