Ultivue, a leader in advancing precision medicine solutions by accelerating tissue biomarker discovery and validation develops unique assays for use in multiplex immunofluorescence imaging and analysis. Its proprietary InSituPlex® technology is designed for fast and comprehensive exploration of biologically-relevant markers combined with same slide-H&E analysis in precious tissue samples.

Fluidigm is a leader in high-parameter imaging for the clinical translational research and clinical testing markets. It’s Imaging Mass Cytometry™ (IMC™) technology is designed for highly multiplexed targeted interrogation of tissue sections for 40 or more protein markers in one scan, with distinct non-overlapping signals from element-labeled antibodies detected simultaneously for each sub-micrometer pixel.   

The collaboration provides reseachers with end-to-end service capability for clinical and translational work. For example, InSituPlex technology is well suited to identify regions of interest that may require downstream, deep profiling with IMC™. Customer access to both technologies can improve the efficiency of drug discovery programs and, in translational research, enable patient stratification to triage cases that require further investigation.

“Imaging Mass Cytometry has become integral to the clinical translational research and clinical testing markets,” said Chris Linthwaite, Fluidigm President and CEO. “Through Fluidigm Therapeutic Insights Services, we will offer our customers access to our technology as well as that of Ultivue, providing optimum imaging solutions for biomarker discovery and drug development.”

“Ultivue is at the forefront of innovation to provide unique biological insights for our customers,” said Mark Rees, Vice-President of Business Development at Ultivue. “Our InSituPlex® technology offers valuable profiling of the tissue and expands the depth of information possible from a single section that is complementary to the high-parameter capabilities of Imaging Mass Cytometry. We believe this joint offering with Fluidigm will now provide researchers a seamless workflow enabling a far more efficient biomarker discovery and drug development process.”
