Mass Cytometry Kits and Reagents
Mass cytometry, powered by CyTOF® technology, is the world’s most advanced single-cell proteomics technology. It has opened new doors to discovery by empowering researchers to interrogate more than 50 markers simultaneously on millions of individual cells, to unveil new cell types, functions and biomarkers in immunology, cancer, stem cells and more.
Fluidigm Maxpar® reagents and protocols along with our Maxpar Panel Designer tool provide all you need for groundbreaking and cost-effective experiments that reveal systems-level biology at single-cell resolution.
Cellular targets in liquid suspension can be labeled with more than 50 metal-tagged reagents, including antibodies, nucleic acid intercalators and analogs, as well as other biochemical ligands. Each reagent is detected and quantified with cytometry by time-of-flight mass spectrometry in the CyTOF system. The high purity and choice of metal isotopes ensure minimal background noise from signal overlap or endogenous cellular components. Our catalog is stocked with over 800 antibodies detecting more than 400 unique human or mouse targets. If a desired antibody is not yet present in our catalog, you can make it yourself using our metal-labeling kits or custom order biologically validated material using our custom conjugation services.
Cell profiling with CyTOF allows investigators to identify multiple target types anywhere in the cell, often simultaneously. Available markers include those for:
- Cell-surface targets
- Signaling and transcription factors
- Cell death and apoptosis
- Cell cycle and proliferation
- Structure and cytoskeleton
- Enzymatic activity
Optimized protocols and detailed technical assistance are available for any combination of targets.
Sample barcoding is a powerful tool offering increased throughput, improved protocol consistency and enhanced data quality. Barcoding also enables efficient use of small precious samples through multiplexing and may provide cost savings through reduced consumption of reagents. Two approaches are available for CyTOF:
Buffers and Solutions
Maxpar buffers provide optimal and consistent staining conditions for external, cytosolic and nuclear targets, while calibration beads enhance data quality and support intersample analysis.VIEW ALL
Optimize your panel using the web-based Maxpar Panel Designer app, an online tool for building panels with Fluidigm metal-conjugated antibodies or custom conjugates. Panel Designer calculates signal overlap and utilizes a specialized algorithm to adjust metal-tagged targets to maximize performance. Export and share panels with collaborators or save for future import into our CyTOF systems.
Custom Antibody Conjugation
When your study calls for new antibodies or specific antibody configurations, consult our team of experts for Custom Conjugation Services to tailor your antibody panels for collecting high-impact data. Our Custom Conjugation Services speed you from design to discovery with made-to-order metal labeling for antibodies not currently listed in the Maxpar catalog, or alternative metal tagging for all listed items. Choose from 42 non-overlapping pure metal tags.
