Understanding the processes of the immune system and interactions at a cellular level is essential to identifying and validating new targets and determining cellular therapy approaches. Advanced cell analysis tools are successfully used for unlocking the secret to immune cell interactions and potentially enabling future breakthroughs in immune-based therapies. Integrated software analysis is key component of advanced cell analysis platforms, allowing for interactive assay development and the evaluation of large data sets through multiparameter data visualization. From linking well data together to combining multiple assay outcomes to identify “hits”, integrated software analysis can quickly provide the data insights you need to accelerate the drug discovery process.
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
