PerkinElmer. Developing effective cancer immunotherapies could potentially deliver what the cancer research community has sought for decades - a cure. In order to advance this research, it's critical researchers see everything a tumor has to show them. Better visualization and identification of cancer immunology biomarkers leads to improved understanding of the underlying biology that lets cancer thrive. PerkinElmer's Phenoptics Research Solution includes a full workflow - multiplex immunohistochemistry staining solutions, multispectral imaging systems, and advanced image-analysis software. This enables a more comprehensive and specific view and analysis of the interaction between cancer and the immune system in a single tissue section.
