Enhanced Automated Multiplex Capabilities on Leica Biosystems BOND Research System
There is an ever-increasing demand to derive more information from limited samples. Multiplex staining provides a means of visualizing many targets in a single tissue section, with the ability to accurately resolve spatial relationships between targets. It is a vital tool in establishing expression profiles of immune checkpoint markers in the tumor microenvironment. Multiplex staining has historically been a long process, and when done manually is generally performed over 2 or more days, depending on the number of markers and chromogen combinations used. Automated chromogenic multiplexing applications have largely been limited to 2- or 3-plex stains and to conduct more than 3-plex had required a combination of manual steps (e.g. pre-mixing chromogens) incorporated with several processing runs on the instrument. As a result, these workflow inefficiencies often hindered optimal assay design and staining quality.
