Discover Your Inner Cell
Mass cytometry has catalyzed the revolution of single-cell proteomics, enabling the most comprehensive understanding of cell phenotypes, signaling pathways and function. Helios™ dawns as the most advanced tool for cellular exploration, with streamlined workflows and multimodal capabilities. It’s system-level biology at single-cell resolution on an accessible, expandable platform designed for breakthrough discovery.
Gain unprecedented insight with 135 detection channels and the ability to measure more than 40 markers per cell.
Make breakthrough discoveries by simultaneously profiling the phenotype and function of all cells in your system.
Get everything you need from Fluidigm, including Maxpar® metal-conjugated reagents, Helios mass cytometer and Cytobank analysis.
Hear what researchers are saying about the power of mass cytometry
Mass cytometry uniquely combines time-of-flight mass spectrometry with Maxpar metal-labeling technology to enable breakthrough discovery and comprehensive functional profiling applications. Cellular targets are labeled with metal-tagged antibodies and detected and quantified by time-of-flight mass spectrometry. The high purity and choice of metal isotopes provide minimal background noise from signal overlap or endogenous cellular components. And 135 available detection channels ensure an ongoing ability to add more parameters, enabling you to fully study the functional complexity of biological systems at the single-cell level.
