Keep Calm and Contract Your Cytometry

Posted on: December 11, 2019

Top 5 Things to Look for in a Flow Cytometry CRO

There comes a moment when the flow cytometry work can be too much. Sometimes it’s the big “make-or-break” experiment that has to go just right, or sometimes it’s the monthly batches of clinical trial samples that have to be handled, on a Saturday, with swift, deft hands, and you’re the only one qualified for the job. That’s when you either break down in tears of exhaustion and frustration, or you consider finding some help. Now most investigators aren’t in a position to hire and train new staff for cytometry work, but there is high quality and reliable alternative - A contract research organization (CRO).

A CRO can carry out your flow cytometry experiments, to you exact specifications, and meet your needs for a single experiment or a multi-year clinical trial. CROs specializing in flow cytometry may be your best option to guarantee high quality and reliable results.

Do’s And Don’ts Of Clinical Flow Cytometry

Posted on: October 16, 2019

We’ve given you advice about what to consider when planning clinical flow cytometry experiments. Now check out these ‘do’s and don’ts’ to get the most out of your next clinical flow experiment.

Do - Know What Types Of Cells You Want To Identify.

Some cells are very robust and are easy to identify in peripheral blood samples. Other cells die if you shake the tube the wrong way or they behave as if they have their own agenda. Take the time to do pilot experiments with samples that are not precious so you can work out a protocol that is robust and precise enough to identify your cells of interest in your valuable clinical samples.

Mind the Mechanism - Using Flow Cytometry to Determine Mechanisms of Action for Therapeutic Antibodies

Posted on: October 02, 2019

Immunotherapy research is a rapidly expanding field in which dozens of monoclonal antibodies are being developed to treat cancer and autoimmune diseases. The mechanism of action (MOA) used by an antibody to mediate a therapeutic response must be defined in order for a candidate antibody to advance down the preclinical development pipeline. Defining the MOA is necessary to fulfilling regulatory requirements for antibodies used in clinical trials and also critical to understanding if the antibody may cause any detrimental side effects.
