SKCCC Immune Monitoring Core (formerly Human Immunology)

 

Overview of Services

The Human Immunology Core provides a broad range of assays to evaluate the cellular immune response to support clinical trials and preclinical studies.  Services available include Multiplex/Luminex cytokine analysis, ELISPOT and FLUOROSPOT (2-3 color).  The Core staff has extensive experience in assay development and optimization.  We can provide technical consultation and support to assist with assay design, the selection of reagents and data analysis.  Along with our colleagues at the Flow Cytometry Core, we continue to expand our capabilities to use the latest immune monitoring technologies to evaluate the cellular immune response. 

For studies involving immune assays, the Immune Monitoring Services (IMS) staff receive scheduled fresh or frozen specimen from the Central Procesing Services staff and perform high-quality immune analysis, including ELISPOT, FLUOROSPOT, multiplex cytokine assays and data analysis according to study requirements. The IMS supports clinical trials and preclinical research with real-time immune analysis of specimens.
