Recognizing cellular variations in what appear to be homogenous populations has become crucial to identifying
immune responses, advancing stem cell research, understanding cancer cells, and studying the effectiveness of
biological therapies. With its highly multi-parametric analysis capability, the CyTOF® 2 mass cytometry system
enables insight into the functional complexity of biological systems at the single cell level. Large 30+ marker
proteomic panels routinely analyzed using mass cytometry provide simultaneous measurement of the breadth of cell
types and depths of their functions in a single tube, enabling researchers to unravel the complex heterogeneity
inherent to biological systems.
