Protein Counting in Single Cancer Cells

Event Date

Course Description

This webinar describes a groundbreaking new technique published recently in Analytical Chemistry for measuring single cancer cells. The study, conducted by Dr. David Walt and his research group at Tufts University, demonstrates that the ultrasensitive Simoa technology makes it possible to quantify phenotypic responses of individual prostate cancer cells, a technique that could be useful for understanding fundamental biology and may eventually enable both earlier disease detection and targeted therapy.
