Changing the course of how diseases are treated and ultimately cured requires a comprehensive understanding of complex cellular phenotypes and their interrelationships in the spatial context of the tissue microenvironment. Imaging Mass Cytometry™ (IMC™) performed on the Hyperion™ Imaging System using Maxpar® metal-tagged antibodies empowers simultaneous interrogation of 4 to 37 protein markers at a time. It is now possible to deeply interrogate tissues and tumors at subcellular resolution while preserving the information in tissue architecture and cellular morphology to uncover new biomarker correlations and cell interactions.

The Hyperion Imaging System provides highly multiplexed data with subcellular spatial resolution from 4 to 37 protein markers on FFPE or frozen tissues or cell smears. Standard protocols for preparing FFPE or frozen tissue slices can be used for sample prep for use with the system.
A common antibody retrieval protocol
The Maxpar antibody staining protocol for Imaging Mass Cytometry makes it easy to combine multiple metal-labeled antibodies in one step. Metal-tagged pathologist-verified Maxpar antibodies for Imaging Mass Cytometry are designed and optimized for use with the Hyperion Imaging System. These antibodies can be combined using a protocol that provides a common antigen retrieval step to simplify panel design for use with FFPE human tissue sections.
A precisely directed laser beam focused at 1 µm collects protein markers stained with metal-tagged Maxpar antibodies and directs these metal tags for detection using proven CyTOF® technology. A discrete signal from each ionized metal tag is detected based on differences in mass instead of wavelength, at 1 Da resolution. The purity and choice of metal isotopes ensure minimal background noise from signal overlap or endogenous cellular components.
Developed for use with the Hyperion Imaging System, the 60-plus and ever-growing list of antibodies currently available in our catalog has been optimized to detect defining markers in immuno-oncology pathways and cancer and immune cell populations. Each lot of conjugated antibody is quality control-tested on tissue sections using the Hyperion Imaging System. If a desired antibody is not yet present in our catalog, you can conjugate it yourself using our metal-labeling kits or inquire about our custom conjugation services.

Maxpar Metal-Conjugated Antibodies
Simplify Imaging Mass Cytometry panel design with pathologist-verified Maxpar antibodies. The Maxpar catalog features more than 60 metal-labeled antibodies and continues to grow rapidly. This initial selection of antibodies focuses on immune and oncology targets to be used with FFPE. Combining the antibodies of interest into a panel is easy using a protocol that provides a common antigen retrieval step. This reduces the time to panel development and significantly expands possibilities for immune system and immuno-oncology research on the Hyperion Imaging System. Design your own custom panel to analyze immunity, cancer progression or cancer immunotherapy research targets.
