Mass cytometry (CyTOF)

Mass cytometry uses many of the same principles as flow cytometry. However, instead of antibodies coupled to fluorochromes, the antibodies used for this technique are coupled to rare metal isotopes. Cells labeled with these antibodies are sprayed into droplets that are introduced into an inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS) where each cell is vaporized in an argon plasma at >7000 °C...
