Flow Cytometry Assay Development

Dedicated assay development laboratories and experienced flow cytometry scientists

We have dedicated assay development laboratories with experienced flow cytometry scientists, providing:

  • Collaborative engagement with sponsors during validation
  • Expert panel & assay design
  • Feasibility assessment
  • 8-12-week assay validation period during which data is shared to refine the assay as needed
  • QC precision, sample precision, and stability
  • Fit-for-purpose validation

Our laboratories have state-of-the art instruments and we provide quantitative instrument standardization. Globally, we have 8, 10, & 40+ color instruments in seven laboratories. Dedicated analysts and senior analysts are assigned per assay, providing better data consistency and resolution without subjective bias from multiple analysts.

We analyze several hundred thousand of flow cytometry samples each year.
