We house a fully outfitted sample preparation laboratory with bench spaces assigned for antibody conjugation, labeling and titration. To ensure highest quality of data produced, we require all reagents used are certified for mass cytometry and are ultra-pure. If you prepare samples in your own facility your sample collection/cell isolation protocol and all reagents used in your sample preparation process must be verified by our staff before samples are run in our facility. Poorly prepared/chemically contaminated samples such as residual density gradient used during PBMC sample isolation will compromise sample integrity and lower quality of data output. In other cases, trace amounts of barium released from non-certified plasticware will damage instrument detector hardware and render your investment unusable at the same time.
