Expert view: Challenges in flow cytometry

11 September 2018 | By

Flow cytometry is a powerful and flexible technology that delivers high content information from single cells and particles. Flow cytometry lends itself to a wide variety of applications, but traditional flow cytometry technologies are not widely adopted in the drug discovery industry due to limited throughput, slow sampling speeds and…

Flow Cytometry In-Depth Focus 2018

7 September 2018 | By

Flow cytometry has played a key role in drug development, largely due to its ability to measure up to twenty parameters on single cells or particles suspended in a fluid stream. Conor Fitzpatrick discusses how the rise of high-throughput flow cytometry has contributed to the advancements in drug discovery...

How recent advances in flow cytometry can aid drug discovery

7 September 2018 | By ,

For many years, screening assays have been based on high-content imaging systems. However, recent advances in the field of flow cytometry have meant that flow-based assays are now more prevalent. The power of flow cytometry to utilise multiple lasers, multiple fluorochromes and multiplexed assays has meant that assays are not…

Expert view: Multiplexed screens in biologics discovery

7 September 2018 | By

Biologics are the fastest growing class of therapeutics in the biopharmaceutical industry. A key driver for this growth is success with anti-cancer immunotherapeutics such as checkpoint modulation, adoptive cell therapy and bispecific T-cell engagers. While these approaches use different tactics to attack tumours, they often employ monoclonal antibodies to target…

Expert view: New developments in real‑time live‑cell analysis

5 September 2018 | By

Live-cell analysis is now a well-established method that is part of the everyday cell biologist’s armoury for understanding cell biology. For over a decade, the functionality, throughput, and ease of use offered by real-time live-cell analysis has provided a platform for accurate and reproducible cell biology analysis in multiple biomedical…
