Imaging Mass Cytometry

Gain unprecedented insights from highly multiplexed single-cell spatial biology

Imaging Mass Cytometry™ (IMC™) is a vital tool that allows researchers to gain an appreciation of the role of heterogeneity in cell function and assess complex phenotypes and tumor-immune interactions in the tissue and tumor microenvironment. Gain a deeper understanding of the spatial environment to answer important translational and clinical research questions in the context of disease.




Design panels using pathologist-verified Maxpar® antibodies conjugated to metal tags.



Stain tissues (FFPE or frozen) using familiar IHC protocols.



Image up to 40 protein markers at single-cell resolution using the Hyperion™ Imaging System.



Analyze images in minutes using the MCD™ Viewer and easily export for secondary analysis.

Using the Hyperion Imaging System, you can visualize the complex spatial biology of the tissue microenvironment with Imaging Mass Cytometry.


  • Single-cell resolution: allows accurate and quantifiable phenotyping and cell function assessment

  • No autofluorescence: reliable results when working with highly autofluorescent tissues like lung, gut, brain and skin

  • No time-consuming cyclic protocols: high-plex protein detection from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded or frozen tissue sections

  • Proven: hundreds of hands-on users and more than 130 peer-review published references

Expert insight on the transformation of precision medicine
