What is mass cytometry?

Mass cytometry combines the advantages of single-cell, high-speed analysis common to conventional flow cytometry with the ability to resolve more than 100 metal probes with minimal signal overlap common to atomic mass spectroscopy, thereby providing researchers with an unparalleled ability to phenotypically and functionally profile cells from normal and diseased states.

The Fluidigm mass cytometry platform includes the Maxpar line of metal-conjugated probes, the Helios mass cytometer and high-dimensional analysis tools from Fluidigm Cytobank.
