Explore the multitude of applications where Flow Cytometry, utilizing a laser beam and fluorescent antibodies, finds its role in research, clinical diagnostics, and beyond. PeploBio's Flow Cytometry services can elevate your work across various fields:
Basophil Activation Test
The Basophil Activation Test (BAT), a cornerstone of allergy research and precision medicine, harnesses the capabilities of Flow Cytometry. Through the precision of Flow Cytometry and the harmonisation of international standards, BAT allows for the meticulous evaluation of basophil activation in response to allergens. This test plays a vital role in diagnosing allergies, aligning with technical harmonisation standards, and ensuring patients receive the most accurate and effective treatments.
Intracellular Cytokine Analysis
Intracellular Cytokine Analysis is at the forefront of immune cell research. By utilizing Flow Cytometry, researchers can delve into the intricate world of immune cells and their responses to various stimuli. This technique, in line with international harmonisation guidelines, enables the examination of intracellular cytokine production within individual immune cells. It aids in studying immune responses to pathogens, vaccines, and therapies, contributing to precision medicine.
Flow Cytometry plays a crucial role in surface profiling, allowing for the high-precision characterization of cell surface markers. This technique, guided by international harmonisation standards, utilizes fluorescent markers to identify and quantify specific molecules on cell surfaces. Researchers, complying with technical harmonisation, can use surface profiling to distinguish between cell types, monitor marker expression changes, and gain insights into disease progression and treatment effects.
Flow Cytometry's precision extends to cell enumeration, a critical aspect of clinical diagnostics and immunology research. With international harmonisation in mind, this technique accurately quantifies cell populations in heterogeneous samples. Whether for clinical diagnostics, monitoring disease progression, or assessing treatment outcomes, precise cell enumeration ensures that immune cell analysis is aligned with technical harmonisation standards.
Cellular Phenotyping, a pillar of immunology research, relies on Flow Cytometry for precision. This technique, in line with international harmonisation standards, enables the comprehensive characterization of immune cell populations. Researchers can assess cell types, surface markers, and functional properties with meticulous detail. Cellular phenotyping plays a pivotal role in understanding immune responses and advancing precision medicine.
Cellular Proliferation Assays
Cellular Proliferation Assays, employing Flow Cytometry, provide dynamic insights into cell growth and replication. Researchers, complying with international harmonisation, can track cell division and assess treatment effects. This precision enables the study of cell cycle dynamics, growth factors, and the influence of therapeutic interventions, contributing to precision medicine.
MDSC (Myeloid-Derived Suppressor Cell) Assays
MDSC Assays, powered by Flow Cytometry, delve into myeloid-derived suppressor cells—a key focus in cancer research. By quantifying MDSCs and assessing their immunosuppressive activity, researchers can explore immunosuppression dynamics within the tumor microenvironment. This precision aligns with international harmonisation principles and opens avenues for targeted immunomodulation in cancer therapy.
