Fluorescence Molecular Tomography

Deep Tissue 3D Imaging for In Vivo Biodistribution and Monitoring of Disease Processes Fluorescence Molecular Tomography (FMT) is a non-invasive imaging modality designed to three-dimensionally visualize and quantify near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) signal in tissues.[1] FMT offers a robust and sensitive alternative to traditional bio-distribution studies using invasive procedures or radiolabeling. It can be used to […]

A Deeper Dive into the Tumor-Infiltrating T Cell Immunophenotype

A Deeper Dive into the Tumor-Infiltrating T Cell Immunophenotype – Introducing the New MI-Expanded CompT™ Multi-Color Flow Cytometry Panel Flow cytometry using large antibody panels has the advantage of examining a greater number of cell subsets. This capability is particularly important when a comprehensive data set is required, but limited […]

Evolving Capabilities Result in New ABSL2 Space at Covance

The landscape of cancer research is everchanging and evolving. There continues to be two primary approaches to initially treating most types of cancer; surgery and/or radiation. The preclinical oncology scientific community has invested countless hours and financial resources to expand upon those treatment options. Over the past 70 years we have added several new tools […]

Multiplex IHC for Patterns of Protein Expression, Co-expression, and Spatial Relationships

Multiplex immunohistochemistry (IHC) is an assay that utilizes the basic concept of single antigen staining to detect multiple markers at one time. It allows for the labeling capabilities of peroxidase, alkaline phosphatase, fluorescence, and other conjugated primary or secondary antibodies and can be achieved using several common methods including indirect or direct staining protocols. Researchers […]
