Helping Your Research

Uncover the mechanisms behind T cell, B cell, and NK cell exhaustion in diverse contexts, including cancer and infectious disease, with a 785 gene panel that gets you results in less than 24 hours and is compatible with a broad range of sample types. Characterize immune cell status, develop signatures for assessing immune cell exhaustion, and identify novel targets for preventing or reversing immune cell exhaustion.

Details
  • Directly profile 785 genes across 47 pathways involved in immune cell exhaustion:
    • Immune Cell Activation
    • Immune Cell Suppression
    • Immune Cell Status
    • Immune Checkpoints
    • Epigenetics
    • Metabolism & Microenvironment
  • Understand the mechanisms of exhaustion in T cells, B cells, NK cells, CAR-T cells and other adoptive immune cells
  • Discover novel targets for preventing or reversing immune exhaustion
  • Determine the extent of a peripherally suppressed, adaptive immune response to cancer with the 18-gene Tumor Inflammation Signature (TIS)
  • Quantify the presence and relative abundance of 14 different immune cell types
Viral Identification

Chronic infectious diseases caused by viruses and other pathogens can induce immune exhaustion. The Human Immune Exhaustion Panel includes probes for Epstein-Barr virus and Cytomegalovirus, and the Mouse Immune Exhaustion Panel includes probes for Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis. The panel can be supplemented with up to 55 genes of your choice with a Panel Plus spike-in for studying immune cell exhaustion in the context of different types of infectious disease.

Tumor Inflammation Signature

The 18-gene Tumor Inflammation Signature is included in the panel gene list and measures activity known to be associated with PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors. Customers have the option to purchase a standalone Tumor Inflammation Signature report with the Immune Exhaustion Panel.

  • Includes four axes of biology that characterize a peripherally suppressed, adaptive immune response, including:
    • Antigen presenting cells
    • T cell/Natural Killer cell presence
    • Interferon gamma biology
    • T cell exhaustion
  • Tissue-of-origin agnostic (Pan-Cancer)
  • Potential surrogate for mutational load and the checkpoint PD-L1 in a research setting

Best Practices for Spatial Profiling for Breast Cancer Research with the GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler

Breast cancer is a heterogenous disease with variability in tumor cells and in the surrounding tumor microenvironment (TME). Understanding the molecular diversity in breast cancer is critical for improving prediction of therapeutic response and prognostication.

Spatially organized multicellular immune hubs in human colorectal cancer.

Immune responses to cancer are highly variable, with mismatch repair-deficient (MMRd) tumors exhibiting more anti-tumor immunity than mismatch repair-proficient (MMRp) tumors. To understand the rules governing these varied responses, we transcriptionally profiled 371,223 cells from colorectal tumors and adjacent normal tissues of 28 MMRp and 34 MMRd individuals.

Increased tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte density is associated with favorable outcomes in a comparative study of canine histiocytic sarcoma.

Histiocytic sarcoma (HS) is a rare and aggressive tumor in humans with no universally agreed standard of care therapy. Spontaneous canine HS exhibits increased prevalence in specific breeds, shares key genetic and biologic similarities with the human disease, and occurs in an immunocompetent setting.
