Preserving and Reporting the Cellular Experience of Hypoxic Environments
2 February 2015
The role of hypoxia on cancer and stem cell behavior is an expanding area of research presenting a renewed focus for drug and biomarker development. Low oxygen stress conditions can change the biological behavior and pharmaco-dynamic responses of tumor cells due to the hypoxia-induced activation of cell protective and proliferation mechanisms. HypoxiTRAK™ is a novel biomarker ideal for use in flow cytometry and imaging to report the degree of hypoxic experience of cells and identify the functionally hypoxic fraction of cells within a population.
