Immune Profiling Services

We harness state of the art CyTOF / Mass Cytometry technology in combination with the 30 antibody Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling Assay and Maxpar Pathsetter automated software to precisely and reliably quantify 37 immune cell populations in human whole blood or PBMC.

The first complete sample-to-answer solution for single-cell high-dimensional immune profiling of human PBMC and whole blood, the Maxpar® Direct™ Immune Profiling Assay and Maxpar Pathsetter™ software provide the data quality and reproducibility required to capture the highly individual nature of immune response in health and disease.

Our ultra-high parameter immune monitoring services are ideal for clinical and translational studies.

  • Work with whole blood or PBMC
  • Conserve precious samples compared to flow cytometry – requires only 270µl of whole blood
  • Customizable – add up to 15 additional markers to achieve deeper insights into specific immune cell populations / function. 
  • Highly consistent and reproducible results between sites, instruments and technicians
  • Detailed report identifies 37 immune populations, the number of cells per population, the percentage of total intact live cells, and the percentage of the parent cell population, as well as QC metrics.
