AACR 2022 Annual Meeting

Event: AACR 2022 Annual Meeting


Discover the only high-throughput hyperplex solution at AACR 2022

Join us at the AACR 2022 Annual Meeting at booth #1806 and discover the only spatial biology solutions which do not require any upstream conjugation or barcoding. Learn how to minimize validation challenges. Get more data, faster.

Follow our exclusive presentations featured at our dinner reception and exhibitor spotlight theatre. Meet our scientists on-site to discover new ways of utilizing any standard reagents to perform high-plex immunofluorescence assays, empowering your lab with a fast and reliable slide-in data-out approach.


The new, easy hyperplex approach:

Lunaphore has re-engineered multiplex IHC on tissue samples, not dictated by reagents. Our hyperplex solution, COMET™, works with any non-conjugated primary antibody you already know. The system is powered by a patented chip technology to extract proteomic data from tissue samples while keeping it in a morphological context.

  • All-in-one, hyperplex IF solution for all labs
    End-to-end automation of multiplex immunofluorescence staining and imaging with simple and efficient assay optimization guidance.
  • Multiplex with standard, non-conjugated antibodies
    Use any of your tissue samples, the way you already use it, while working with your standard antibody libraries, no conjugation or barcoding needed.
  • More data, faster
    Set up a new multiplex assay in days and start generating full immunofluorescence data sets of up to 40-plex on a daily base for 4 samples in parallel.



AACR affiliate dinner reception:


“Hyperplex spatial biology made easy”

Listen to world-class scientists. Check data. Talk with users.


The dinner reception, sponsored by Lunaphore and Affiliated with the AACR 2022 Annual Meeting, brings together world-class scientific experts from the industry and academic research institutions. By attending the event you will discover how Lunaphore’s solutions streamline single-cell hyperplex assays and allow move seamlessly from discovery to translational research. You will have the chance to hear from users presenting their experience with the novel COMET™ system, inclusive of operation, performance and panel development.

After that, we will welcome on stage the guests speakers: Dr. Michael Surace, Prof. Dr. MD Janis Taube and, Dr. MD Carlo Bifulco. They will be engaged in a roundtable discussion: “Multiplex immunofluorescence in cancer biology”.

Please note: 
Participation of Dr. Taube, Dr. Bifulco, and Dr. Surace as guest speakers does not constitute or imply endorsement of Lunaphore by, respectively, John Hopkins University, Providence, and AstraZeneca.
