See why mass cytometry is right for you.

Why mass cytometry is right for researchers

  • Mass cytometry is a proven and well-adopted technology, used in more than 100 clinical trials and cited in over 1,000 peer-reviewed publications .
  • Capacity to create large panel sizes means getting more data from every precious sample. Mass cytometry panels with 20-plus parameters are easier to build and modify than fluorescence-based panels.
  • Our end-to-end solutions and a workflow like flow cytometry let you get started quickly with less hands-on time and faster results. The Maxpar® Direct™ Immune Profiling Assay™ makes immunophenotyping easy with no titrations, no panel-building and straightforward data analysis.
  • A global user community offers plenty of scientific and expert resources such as published protocols, methods and guides to data analysis and support for COVID-19 research.
“The sample set I have I will never get again, so I need to get as much information out of every precious sample.”

—Evan Lind, PhD, on his Beat AML project
Assistant Professor, Molecular Microbiology and Immunology
Oregon Health & Science University

Why mass cytometry is right for core facilities

  • Leverage an established technology to expand your services. Mass cytometry enables the broadest range of applications for both basic and translational research.
  • Provide cost-effective services. Because no experiment-specific instrument optimization is required, you save time and samples.
  • Streamline your services with a variety of end-to-end workflow solutions, including the Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling Assay with automated data analysis, pre-designed panel kits and fully customizable workflows.

“I think having mass cytometry as an option for our researchers is hugely important. … They can expand the level of the detection that they're doing with a smaller sample size.”

—Matthew Cochran, MS
Technical Director
University of Rochester Medical Center Flow Cytometry Resource

Why mass cytometry is right for data analysis

  • Easily interrogate more than 50 markers simultaneously on millions of individual cells without compromising sensitivity or accuracy due to signal compensation or spectral unmixing.
  • Data does not need to be deconvoluted or unmixed prior to analysis.
  • There is no spreading error to fear because with mass cytometry there is no autofluorescence or spectral overlap.
  • Improve data quality by increasing the number of useful single-cell events and eliminating sample-to-sample staining variability with fixed- or live-cell sample barcoding.

“Using very high-dimensional analysis with CyTOF allows us to look at all of the parameters we are interested in at once but that would not fit into a traditional flow cytometry panel.”

Choose from over 800 high-quality, directly conjugated antibodies to mouse and human epitopes to build your own panel.


In a single afternoon, you can easily label antibodies of your choice with any of 42 isotopic metals to customize your panel with the markers you need.


Select one of 28 pre-designed panel kits that enable a wide range of applications like immuno-oncology and infectious disease research, intracellular cytokine phenotyping, and many others.
“I particularly like the flexibility you have with samples and premixed cocktails. You can prepare your cocktails and freeze them, so they are ready for later studies. This is very difficult to do in flow, to work with a stabilized cocktail of many antibodies.”
