BRANFORD, Conn., July 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- IsoPlexis Corporation (IsoPlexis), a privately held life sciences company at the forefront of single-cell analytics technology, has installed its ground-breaking IsoLight benchtop system at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, as part of the company's Early Adopter Program.
The sample-to-answer IsoLight benchtop system analyzes IsoPlexis' IsoCode chip, to provide clinical and translational researchers a powerful, yet straightforward solution for establishing immune response functional correlates with outcome in key therapeutic areas like CAR-T and other cellular immunotherapies. The IsoCode Chip was recognized as The Scientist's and Fierce Life Science's #1 innovation of 2017 for its ability to provide both single-cell sensitivity and highly multiplexed and quantitative functional ELISA detection together for the first time.
Sean Mackay, CEO and Co-founder of IsoPlexis, commented "We are very excited to be placing an IsoLight system at Fred Hutch, a pioneer in CAR-T immunotherapy. We strive to provide the benefits of high dimensional, single-cell proteomic data to partners like Fred Hutch, in order to continue to improve cellular characterization and correlates in the fast-moving immuno-oncology field and beyond."
Data from the IsoCode Chip was recently published in the journal Blood, showing improved ability to predict responses of CAR-T patients pre-infusion, versus existing technologies. The IsoLight, which was awarded global Red Dot Design Award in 2018, has an integrated design combining precision imaging and fluidics with a user-friendly software interface to create a uniquely easy-to-use single-cell system.
