The Immune Monitoring Shared Resource provides standardized, robust analytical assays that query the status of the immune system. Immune Monitoring offers a single pipeline for extensive correlative analysis. Our state-of-the-art facility provides consultation, sample processing, advanced flow cytometry, cytokine analysis using the Luminex-200 platform, bulk gene expression analysis using the NanoString platform, and single-cell RNA sequencing using libraries created with 10X genomics technology.

As the only Immune Monitoring Shared Resource in New Jersey, our goal is to:

  • Serve as material experts in Immunology, consulting and assisting with the design of trials incorporating immune system analysis.
  • Offer a robust series of standardized and novel assays for immune monitoring.
  • Provide standardized expert analysis of assay data, including preparation of figures for use in study reports, grants, and manuscript submissions.
  • Continually develop, optimize, and validate emerging technologies and techniques related to immune monitoring, remaining on the leading edge of innovation for the benefit of the clinicians and researchers of the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey.
  • Maintain consistent and professional business practices in relation to services provided to ensure ease of use and a streamlined, efficient experience for clinicians, investigators, and staff.
