Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
DVS Sciences Inc., a privately held innovator of novel multi-parameter single-cell analyzers and reagents for biological research technology, announced today that they will be participating in an upcoming episode of Innovations, hosted by Ed Begley, Jr.
In this episode, Innovations will explore the transformative impact that the Mass Cytometry platform, pioneered by DVS, is having on scientific discovery. One of the major challenges facing researchers today is how best to untangle the function of biological systems given the functional heterogeneity of the many different cell types that make up the system.
“We are very excited about this opportunity to inform researchers and the public on the power of the CyTOF instrument and our Mass Cytometry technology,” stated Joe Victor, President and CEO of DVS Sciences.
Audiences will learn about mass cytometry, which includes the CyTOF 2 mass cytometer and associated metal-tagged reagents. In addition, viewers will be educated on how mass cytometry provides researchers with an unparalleled ability to phenotypically and functionally profile cells from normal and diseased states, and has been used in high-dimensional studies in diverse disciplines including immunology, cancer research, stem cell biology and drug profiling.
“DVS Sciences is committed to developing robust, innovative instrumentation that accelerate medical research and transform drug discovery," said Michele Nehls, producer for the series. "I'm really looking forward to providing this vital information to our audience."
