Cellular heterogeneity is a key factor in various cellular processes as well as in disease development, especially associated with immune response and cancer progression. Cell-to-cell variability is considered to be one of the major obstacles in early detection and successful treatment of cancer. Most present technologies are based on bulk cell analysis, which results in averaging out the results acquired from a group of cells and hence missing important information about individual cells and their behavior.
