Combining PLA and mass cytometry, the method allows simultaneous measurement in the range of 40 to 50 RNAs and proteins in hundreds of thousands of cells.

Stanford researchers used Fluidigm's CyTOF instrument to explore links between the diversity of natural killer (NK) cell populations and HIV susceptibility.

According to the Piper Jaffray analysis, of the 54 total papers published using CyTOF technology, 25 of them, or 46 percent, were published in 2014.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Despite early softness in its recently acquired CyTOF business, Fluidigm officials this week reiterated the growing importance of proteomics in the firm's overall strategy.

Fluidigm said this week that it has agreed to acquire mass cytometry firm DVS Sciences for roughly $207.5 million in company common stock and cash.

A team led by researchers from Stanford University has developed a multi-omics approach for profiling individuals' immune systems.

Stanford University researcher Garry Nolan has developed a cellular barcoding technique for multiplexing mass cytometry experiments on DVS Sciences' CyTOF mass cytometry instrument and has used it to investigate the effects of various small-molecule inhibitors on human peripheral

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – DVS Sciences and Cytobank recently announced an agreement to co-develop and integrate a solution that automatically analyzes and manages large datasets generated by DVS' mass cytometry instruments.

DVS Sciences, developer of the CyTOF mass cytometry platform, this week announced a business agreement with flow cytometry informatics firm Cytobank to develop a cloud-based informatics platform for managing and analyzing CyTOF data.

According to founder and CEO Scott Tanner, the funds will go primarily toward ramping up production of CyTOF instruments, reagent production, and the establishment of a global sales and service team.
