Global launch of X-ZELL Cryoimmunostaining™ Suite confirmed
Singapore, February 2019 – Rare cell detection specialist X-ZELL has officially confirmed the launch of the world’s first 9-colour immunostaining system.
Originally designed to enable the company’s headline-making research into next-generation biomarkers, the long-anticipated production version of the X-ZELL Cryoimmunostaining™ Suite is set to debut at the 2019 Medlab Asia Pacific trade show, to be held at Singapore’s Suntec Convention Centre from 26-18 March.
Comprised of two high-performance devices, the CryoFixator™ and the CryoStainer™, the system allows researchers to apply up to nine biomarkers* at a time to cells fixated on standard laboratory slides – making it one of the most powerful cytology tools in the world.
“We have had tremendous success using our Cryoimmunostaining™ technology as part of our own research over the past two years,” said X-ZELL CEO, Dr Sebastian Bhakdi – explaining the system serves as the gateway to next generation, 9-colour fluorescence microscopy, a breakthrough technique he invented and published in 2018.
“Nine-colour immunostaining has not only enabled us to detect a new type of circulating cell that had previously been considered undetectable in clinical routine, but also allowed us to develop liquid biopsies that can reliable detect clinically significant prostate cancer at the earliest stages.
“We believe now is the time to make next-generation single-cell immunofluorescence cytology accessible to researchers worldwide.”
Designed & manufactured in Singapore, the X-ZELL Cryoimmunostaining™ Suite will initially be available for research use only.

*X-ZELL’s Cryoimmunostaining™ Suite has been validated for 16 different, primary fluorophore-labelled antibodies, up to nine of which can be utilised in parallel to enable the fast and direct visualization and characterization of membrane, cytosolic and nuclear antigen expression in single cells as well as organ tissue – all with minimal crosstalk between fluorescence channels and no downstream application of advanced mathematical algorithms.
