Why Outsource Flow Cytometry?

Posted on: June 19, 2019

Make Your Decision With These 5 Questions

You have just gotten approval to start a big phase 1 clinical trial and 172 precious blood samples are about to come through your door in about two months. What do you do? Do you clone yourself and your outstanding flow cytometry skills? Do you consider skipping sleep for a few weeks? Do you panic? Perhaps, you should consider outsourcing your flow cytometry analysis ... 

Walk through the who, what, where, when, and why of outsourcing flow cytometry and make the best decision for your next flow cytometry-based project.

Pairing Two Techniques: Cell Sorting & Mass Spectrometry

Posted on: June 05, 2019

What is the Technology?

Flow Cytometry and Mass Spectrometry are widely used analytical tools in cancer research. Flow Cytometry (FACS or Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting) has been well established for cell counting, cell sorting and biomarker discovery. Its ability to utilize 14+ colors makes it the technique-of-choice for isolation of many cell subtypes especially rare cells such as stem cells. Mass Spectrometry is unparalleled in its ability to selectively detect and quantify target proteins at the molecular level. By combining these two powerful techniques, it is possible to isolate highly selective cellular populations from biological fluids and quantify the cell’s specific proteins.

Data Visualization – t-SNE Plots Explained

Posted on: May 30, 2019

Flow cytometry has moved into the era of “big data,” and data plots have also shifted from scatter plots and histograms toward visualization methods that can handle this complex data. This era of computational cytometry has ushered in the use of T-distributed Stochastic Neighbor Embedding (t-SNE) data analysis, a machine learning algorithm applied to complex flow cytometry data. Check out these three reasons why t-SNE data analysis is a valuable data visualization tool for flow cytometry.

Quality Control and Flow Cytometry:  What is it and why do it?

Posted on: May 22, 2019

Flow cytometry (FC) is a sensitive and highly customizable technique that can be used in both preclinical and clinical studies. How do you ensure that flow cytometry data is reliable, consistent and can meet the standards required for regulatory requirements or clinical trials? Implementing quality control (QC) procedures is a widely accepted strategy to guarantee that your flow cytometry data is handled in a rigorous and consistent manner and can be used for regulatory compliance and clinical trial evaluations.
