Fluidigm Cadmium Metal Labeling Kits for Mass Cytometry

Fluidigm has releases seven new Maxpar cadmium metal labeling kits for use with mass cytometry: 106Cd, 110Cd, 111Cd, 112Cd, 113Cd, and 116Cd. Fluidigm said that the kits will enable researchers to easily expand mass cytometry panels as demand grows for larger panels to interrogate the immunome, cancer, and other complex diseases. When the labels are used with existing panels comprising more than 20 parameters, researchers can simultaneously profile more than 50 cell surface and intracellular parameters in a single run. Researchers can also use the kits to customize Fluidigm pre-designed panels, including the Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling Assay, Fluidigm said.
