Learn more about Morphology Driven High-Plex Spatial Analysis of Tissue Microenvironments – NanoString and Leica Biosystems technology combined: A user experience

In this webinar, learn more about a new digital pathology technique for the quantitative assessment of immune-cell populations within archived FFPE Biopsies using cytometric analysis.

COVID-19 is a complex multi-phase disease in which the immune system causes disease exacerbation in some patients. This talk covers how digital pathology and tissue multiplexing techniques can be combined to effectively investigate the pathophysiology of SARS-CoV-2 to better inform the optimal selection and scheduling of therapeutic approaches.

At the 53rd Meeting of the European Pancreatic Club, Leica Biosystems sponsored interesting short talks from Prof Aldo Scarpa, President of EPC, and Dr Rita Lawlor on "Multiplexing Immunohistochemistry for Applied Research", and “Digital imaging for biobanking and artificial intelligence”.

RNAscope detects RNA in any tissue type and is becoming a widely used technique in research laboratories. Dr. Carossino introduces IHC and ISH  methodologies and platforms, as well as the advantages of automating these techniques with respect to RNAscope and automation with Leica Biosystems BOND RXM.

Processing multiple specimens and performing serial cuts can result in high section numbers. Nevertheless, reproducibility can't be compromised. Permanent attention to detail and many hours in front of the cryostat can be exhausting for the user.  

In this webinar, learn about various multiplex labeling (up to 10-plex) techniques and subsequent whole slide imaging approaches from Visikol. Hear how this can be applied to answer complex research questions such as surveying the immune cell population within a tumor microenvironment, or evaluating therapeutics for infectious diseases. 

There is an ever-increasing demand to derive more information from limited research samples. Establishing expression profiles of the tumor microenvironment can be achieved via multiplex staining now with chromogenic detection. Discover how the new features of the Leica Biosystems BOND research system and new assays combine to support automated 6-plex chromogenic multiplexing.
