About the core

The CyTOF Helios analyzes cells labeled with stable heavy-metal isotopes using state-of-the-art time-of-flight atomic mass cytometry technology. Single-cell experimentation methods provide critical advances for research in cancer, cardiovascular biology, embryonic stem cells and development, hematopoietic stem cells and progenitors, immunity and infectious disease.

  • Multi-parametric single-cell data, deep profiling
  • Detect up to 42 parameters simultaneously in a single sample
  • Detect more from limited samples
  • Advantages over traditional flow cytometry: No background, no overlap between channels, no compensation issues
  • Now available for tissue sections with imaging mass cytometry (IMC)
