HISTOLOGY TIPS & TRICKS: QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS, Part 2
Following our 2-part webinar series of Tips & Tricks to Better Histology, questions about histology-related issues were received from customers and answered by Leica Biosystems. Here, in Histology Tips & Tricks: Questions and Answers, Part 2, more questions are answered, specifically regarding decalcifying agents, and tissue section bubbling/cracking.
Multiplexing In Tissue-Based Research: Chromogenic Staining and Automation
Immunohistochemistry (IHC) detects proteins of interest within whole tissue sections, keeping cellular organization intact.
Digital Pathology in Toxicological Pathology Studies
Drug development is a timely and costly process, with the average cost of bringing a single new drug to market costing $1.3 billion, taking anywhere between 10-15 years to finalize complete all clinical trials. Preclinical studies are the vital first steps in research and development and is estimated to cost $7M over 73 months. Up to 35% of drugs are eliminated at phase I and II clinical trials due to toxicity.
Chromogenic Multiplex Biomarker Profiling of Human FFPE Tissues Using UltraPlex Technology
At the Multiplex User Meeting hosted via LabRoots, Helen Snyder, PhD delivered a live session detailing Cell IDx’s UltraPlex chromogenic multiplex IHC technology. Their chromogenic detection system of 3-4 markers simultaneously is developed to run on BOND RX autostainer in 4-5 hours, providing maximal information on small tissue samples for biomarker discovery.
Enhanced Automated Multiplex Capabilities on Leica Biosystems BOND Research System
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.

Following our two-part webinar series of Tips & Tricks to Better Histology, further questions were raised by customers referring to specific issues encountered during histology/staining practice. Some of these questions are answered here to help combat issues experienced in the laboratory.
Keeping Your Eye On Image Color
Image Viewing and Image Analysis Across Digital Pathology Scanner Model
Digital pathology is a growing field, with multiple vendors offering a variety of hardware and software for different applications. With many options available for digital pathology scanners, viewing software, and both consumer and medical review monitors, users need the ability to adapt to variations in image appearance.
From Microscope To Monitor
A Proprietary Color Match Method from Leica Biosystems
Digital pathology is quickly growing across the globe as it offers increasing benefits to standardize and optimize the pathology lab workflow. Pathologists can now retrieve their cases in digital form and review and sign off cases using a PC and monitor. However, digital pathology companies offer many different monitors, depending on the company. Pathologists are often frustrated by the color variation of a digital image as it may not match the microscope color experience They often prefer a color that looks as close as possible to the typical experience using a microscope.
