How to optimize a hyper-plex immunostaining panel in a fast and robust manner
Date: 14 September 2021, 13:30 – 13:50 UTC+1
Speaker: Dr. Saska Brajkovic, Head of Application Development, Lunaphore
Abstract: Multiplexed immunofluorescence is a technique which can provide unparalleled insight into biomarker expression-based analyses in tissue, including studying the interaction of different cell types in the tumor microenvironment using a single tissue section. One of the challenging aspects related to this technique is the optimization of new markers and building marker panels of interest. Here, we present a fast, robust and automated method for optimizing hyper-plex panels using the COMET™ technology.
