The application helps scientists to discover the processes of the immune system and interactions at a cellular level is central to identifying and validating new targets and cellular therapy approaches.
Flow cytometry has been used extensively to study immune cells, yielding information regarding cellular subtypes, activation status and viability using expression profiles and cell health markers. In recent years, live-cell analysis has become an established method by which temporal and spatial information can be gained from the interactions and resultant killing of tumor cells.
Combining the benefits of advanced high throughput flow cytometry and live cell analysis offers the potential to gain additional insights into the mechanisms of immune cell killing. This application note highlights these key advantages:
