The introduction of multiplex immunostaining practices, including immunofluorescence and immunohistochemistry, has shown great potential for use when pathological specimens have a limited amount of material and/or there is a need for the localization of signals in a single slide. In this webinar, the possible clinical applications of a range of multiplexing techniques and panels will be discussed, including potential methods for analyzing the resulting complex images.

Learning Objectives

  • Gain insight into the potential uses of multiplex immunostaining in clinical pathology
  • Understand the technical and analytical limitations of these techniques
