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

  • Receptor expression

  • Gene and/or protein expression

  • SNP Genotyping

  • Protein-protein interactions

Additionally, this platform allows us to study secretion from growing tumor-stromal cell cultures:

  • Tumor cells

  • Nucleic Acids

  • Proteins

  • 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.
