Science Milestone: The development of imaging mass cytometry

Interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation propelled transformative advancements in single cell proteomic analysis. 

During the 2000s, flow cytometry, the standard method for cell analysis, could only handle a limited number of measurements simultaneously. The idea of incorporating mass spectrometry’s high throughput protein detection sparked a sequence of innovations that led to the creation of imaging mass cytometry, which opened new avenues for unraveling the spatial and molecular complexities of tissues.
