Mass cytometry is a method that combines flow cytometry with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). The fusion of these two technologies facilitates the simultaneous analysis of over 40 cellular parameters on a single-cell level, enabling the investigation of complex cellular systems. The usage of metal labeling instead of fluorochome conjugation, as used for conventional flow cytometry, results in none to minimal spectral overlap.
As a high-parameter technique, mass cytometry depends on standardized antibodies that ensure consistent performance. To improve your data quality when it comes to mass cytometry, we have extended our portfolio to include recombinantly engineered antibodies specifically optimized for CyTOF® applications.
Our REAfinity Recombinant Antibodies provide high lot-to-lot consistency, resulting in reliable and reproducible results. Advantages for mass cytometry users include:
Every REAfinity Antibody comes as a human IgG1 isotype. The pure antibodies are provided at a concentration of 1 µg/uL in aqueous buffer and are therefore optimized for conjugation with heavy metal isotopes.
