Tips & Tricks to Multiplexing: Top 5 Reasons to Multiplex and Chromogenic versus Immunofluorescent Detection

Rhian Evans, Ph.D., Scientist

Multiplex staining is an advancement on the single marker per tissue section immunohistochemistry technique, enabling the detection of multiple markers simultaneously on the SAME tissue sample. Watch our 2 short videos below to learn more about multiplexing! Download the complementary infographics to keep the points on hand when you need to revisit the information.
