WORKING WITH LIVE CELLS
ENABLES US TO STUDY THE
UNIQUE BIOLOGY OF A PATIENT'S TUMOR
Each patient's cancer is unique due to the specific activation of biochemical pathways that drive cell growth and proliferation.
Working with actual tumor cells,
and not artificially modified cell lines, allows us to:
Study the biochemical pathways that are activated in a patient's tumor cells
Evaluate the proteins, nucleic acids, and exosomes secreted by live and growing tumor cells
We can see how and why a patient's unique cancer cells grow and respond to treatments in real time.
Multiple Tumor Types
Helomics has over 15 years of experience in growing human tumor and supportive stromal cells in these tumor types:
Gynecologic (Ovarian, Endometrial, Cervical) | Lung | Colon | Breast | Brain | Prostate
What can we monitor using live cells?
Using our proprietary live cell tissue culture platform enables us to monitor:
Cellular heterogeneity and morphology
Spatial distribution changes
Growth rates and kinetics
Gene and/or protein expression
Additionally, this platform allows us to study secretion from growing tumor-stromal cell cultures:
Exosomes and exosome contents
Both tumor cells and their secretory products can be biochemically profiled using our comprehensive tumor profiling platform.
Our live cell tissue culture platform can be used as a
key research and discovery tool
that addresses the challenges of our partners in the
pharmaceutical, diagnostic, and biotechnology industries.
