Immune Monitoring

The Immune Monitoring Shared Resource provides high dimensional mass cytometry analysis to research colleagues at Winship Cancer Institute and Emory University.

The goal of the Immune Monitoring Shared Resource of Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University is to provide Winship members with access to the innovative high dimensional mass cytometry analysis platform Helios.

Members can apply mass cytometry data analysis in applications including cell identification, detection of clinical biomarkers, cell phenotyping, phosphorylation-induced signaling, and functional readouts of cell-cycle status, proliferation, and apoptosis in human and murine samples.

We are capable of measuring over 40 available channels simultaneously using metal conjugated antibodies. Users can access the Helios mass cytometer and receive expert counseling on basic science and clinical research applications in the fields of immunology, cancer biology, systems biology, and autoimmunity.

Services available

The Immune Monitoring Shared Resource offers the following services:

  • Counseling for panel design, antibody selection, and antibody conjugation.
  • Mass cytometry standardization training for published techniques including antibody titration, data validation, and data analysis workflow.
  • Software support and training for the cloud-based data analysis platform Cytobank.

Be sure to contact us well in advance if you are a first-time user of mass cytometry instrumentation.
