Single-cell resolution. Real insight.

The immune system consists of a wide range of distinct cell types, each with an important role in maintaining immune competence and successful response to infectious agents and cancer. Understanding the immune signatures and phenotypes that correlate with disease progression and inform successful therapeutic development is one of the greatest challenges.

Using highly multiplexed analysis of the immune system at single-cell resolution, researchers are revealing new insights and identifying novel immune signatures and phenotypes that reflect the state and potential of the immune system across health and disease. At Fluidigm, we are committed to providing the most comprehensive suite of single-cell analysis solutions in the industry across DNA, RNA, epigenetic and protein markers, and functional analysis—all to help you reach your next breakthrough.

Technology Workshop

Immune cell development, specialization and function: immunologic insights at single-cell resolution

Join us at Immunology 2016™ and learn how high-parameter, single-cell research can provide new insight into the immune system. Whether you are studying hematopoiesis, T cell clonality or the tumor microenvironment, learn how three leading immunologists used mass cytometry and single-cell RNA sequencing to ask bigger questions and gain novel insights.
