Sample multiplexing for human leukocytes

With live-cell barcoding for CyTOF®

Scale up translational and clinical studies by barcoding 35 or more samples.

For customized multiplexing capability, live-cell barcoding is a flexible option that lets you vastly increase your multiplexing power to 35 samples or more. 

Live-cell barcoding labels human white blood cell samples with anti-CD45 (a pan-leukocyte marker) antibodies selected from our catalog.

Choose from 12 metal-labeled anti-CD45 antibodies, including 4 new platinum tags, for greater flexibility to integrate barcoding with your panels and scale-up experiments.

Sample Multiplexing for Cytometry Studies | Webinar by Roberto Spada, PhD

In this recording you will learn:
  • Why barcoding is advantageous to large cytometry studies
  • The products offered by Fluidigm for two barcoding approaches
  • Choosing the right barcoding method for your research needs
  • How to scale beyond 35-plex barcoding

Benefits of live-cell barcoding

Fixation-independent Fixation-independent: Cell fixation and permeabilization steps not required, so fixative-sensitive epitopes are preserved

Accessibility Accessibility: Uses isotopes and workflows that are compatible with existing panel designs

Throughput Throughput: Reduces processing time throughout the entire experimental workflow by multiplexing up to 35 samples
Reduced variability Reduced variability: Eliminates sample-to-sample variation introduced when samples are stained and collected individually

Data quality Data quality: Increases the number of useful single-cell events by filtering out debris and other cellular artifacts

Sample conservation Sample conservation: Enables efficient use of precious samples by allowing you to combine multiple samples in one tube

Example custom barcoding design. A 50-plus-plex design using an 11-choose-3 live-cell barcoding scheme combining CD45 antibodies conjugated with cadmium (106, 110–114, 116) and platinum (194–196, 198).
