Event Overview:

Analyzing single cells using inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (SC-ICP-MS) has, in recent years, become an established technique for helping to advance our understanding of cellular processes where elements are involved. This technique has provided valuable insights in areas including molecular biology, drug development and toxicological studies. The current generation of single cell nebulizer and spray chamber designs has yielded considerable improvements in intact cell transport efficiency leading to higher sensitivity, lower detection limits and greater discrimination between intracellular element concentration evaluation and background dissolved element signals. Together with improvements in single cell ICP-MS hardware components, recent software innovations have made data collection, processing and interpretation easier, enabling laboratories with limited elemental analysis experience to adopt single cell ICP-MS and add its capabilities to their existing analytical techniques.

In the first part of this webinar, the latest software advances for single cell ICP-MS analysis will be introduced and what the newest features provide for this application will be described. The second part of the presentation will focus on the practical application of single cell ICP-MS and will include results and data interpretation from selected research studies.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Hear how the latest software developments enable simpler extraction, processing and evaluation of single cell ICP-MS data
  • See what additional insights single cell ICP-MS can bring in combination with other complementary techniques in your laboratory for enhancing understanding of biological processes
  • Discover practical applications of this technique and how to optimize the analysis

Who Should Attend:
Researchers investigating biological processes in cells

  • Biopharmaceutical and clinical research analysts looking at extending their analytical capabilities
  • Laboratory directors interested in new technologies for improving their bioprocessing and cell culturing processes
