Rapid Image Cytometry Method for Cell Counting and Viability Measurement for Cellular Therapy

Patients with cancers such as multiple myeloma, leukemia, lymphoma, and other metastatic cancers have tumor cells with unique immunological targets that when exploited, can lead to the complete destruction of the mass and a lasting remission from disease. Clinicians attack those targets using cell therapy, also known as “targeted immunotherapy”. Cell therapy is the programming of a patient’s own immune cells to target that patient’s tumor cells for destruction. One application of cell therapy, Adoptive Cell Transfer (ACT), employs select methods of genetic manipulation and propagation of those immune cells ex vivo so that the newly programmed cells can be [...]
