Cytometry is a powerful tool for measuring and isolating at high throughput different phenotypic, functional or structural aspects within complex suspension or tissue samples and at single cell resolution.
The Institut Curie Cytometry Platform CYTPIC thus offers internal and external users suitable solutions based on cutting-edge technologies as conventional, spectral, image and spatial cytometry applied to the study of circulating biomarkers, extracellular vesicles, cells and tissues.

CYTPIC is pleased to announce the arrival of Anne-Gaelle Lafont, PhD.
"Since obtaining my PhD degree in biology in 2006, I have had the opportunity to work in various fields of research. I worked mainly on aquatic models (fish, cephalopods) and on the impact of environmental factors (salinity, temperature), hormones and peptides, on the physiological regulations of these different models. I also investigated the evolution history of gene families in vertebrates. For all this, I used molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry and in silico approaches.
In 2019, I graduated from the inter university degree “Project Manager and Investigator of Clinical Trials” at Pierre and Marie Curie University. I was then recruited as a research engineer, operational manager of the biobank of the Saint-Antoine hospital in Paris. During this contract, I notably set up the microbiology laboratory for the new activity of the Biobank dedicated to research on the Intestinal Microbiota.
Since the 17th of July, I have joined the Paris Cytometry Plateform of the Curie Institute.
The Cytometry Platform of the Institut Curie (CYTPIC) is happy to announce the upgrade of our Chromium Controller to the Chromium iX at the site of Orsay thanks to the Initiative Single Cell (NGS platform) and the support of U1021, UMR3348 and the Research Center.
The Chromium iX, based on NextGEM technology, is a microfluidic instrument for isolating cells or cell nuclei from a suspension (biological sample) for transcriptomic, proteomic and/or epigenetic analysis in NGS at the scale of single cells or nuclei.
The Chromium iX supports new 10X solutions (RNA Fixed, and more to come). Possible and non-exhaustive applications:
- Single Cell Gene Expression on all types of fresh or fixed cells.
- Characterization of accessible regions of chromatin (ATAC) at single nucleus scale, possible in combination with gene expression on single cells or nuclei.
- Amplification of VDJ sequences in fresh human and murine T and B lymphocytes for single-cell immune profiling of test organisms.
Cytometry platform is pleased to organize two consecutive seminars on multiplexing technologies for protein assays compatible with our Bioplex 200 instrument already available on the Paris site.
SEMINAR 2 :
Second seminar will be co-organized with ThermoFisher on June 21st from 10am to 11am in Amphithéatre Marie Curie.
Procartaplex: Detect and quantify simultaneoulsy multiple proteins (up to 80) in a single sample, using the Luminex xMAP technology. Combine multipexing efficacy with Elisa easiness, sensitivity,
precision and reproducibility. www.thermofisher.com/procartaplex
Branched DNA (bDNA): A unique approach allowing RNA detection by using successive nucleic acids hybridization
and signal amplification.
QuantiGene®plex assays: Detect and quantify multiple RNA in one sample. No need to extract or purify , no need to check RNA quality (up to 80 targets). Work on degraded samples.
Combine Branched DNA principle with Luminex® xMAP® technology.
