Mass Cytometry Facility - Welcome!

Technology

Mass cytometry is a single-cell multiparametric protein detection technology based on inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. Sample is probed with antibodies or other reagents tagged with metal isotopes and then analyzed. With over 100 available detection channels, CyTOF can simultaneously measure extreme numbers of sample features without the issue of spectral overlap typical for classical, fluorochrome-based flow cytometry.

Services

With us you can receive the following services:

  • Access to reagent repository (buffers and antibodies)
  • Sample acquisition
  • Technical training in operating the instrument(s)
  • Technical training in analyzing high-dimensional single cell datasets

In special circumstances, we can engage in collaborative efforts and support an entire experimental workflow based on mass cytometry
