COMET™'s product front view

Scalable hyperplexing

Unmatched hyperplex throughput with walk-away automation
  • Perform a 20-plex on cohorts of 20 samples in just 1 week.
  • Virtually unlimited plex level capability (perform multiple additional runs on the same slide).
  • Slide in, OME-TIFF image out (with background already subtracted).
Rapid and flexible panel development using label-free antibodies
  • Use standard, off-the-shelf, label-free primary antibodies. No conjugation or barcoding needed.
  • Transfer your existing know-how of IHC / IF antibodies to your COMET™ library.
  • Generate hyperplex protocols automatically in just a few clicks.
True reproducibility and tissue preservation
  • Maximize reproducibility thanks to a fully automated workflow and precision microfluidics.
  • Tissue morphology and epitope stability are fully preserved for downstream applications.
  • Avoid undesired variability thanks to no upstream antibody conjugations.

Hyperplex workflow without user intervention

A fully integrated system across staining, image acquisition and image pre-processing.

The Lunaphore COMET™ system has enabled us to perform highly-multiplexed imaging of entire cross sections of mouse hearts with sub-cellular resolution. The flexible panel design accelerated  antibody validation and measurements so that we can already perform spatial analysis of the heart at scale.

Using COMET™ means that we don’t need to conjugate or do anything to our primary antibodies, and for us this is important as we have a lot of in-house generated antibodies that we would like to apply.

Product front view
  • Reagents Module

    Reagents and buffers are loaded in small and large volume reservoirs respectively and delivered to the sample through microfluidic channels.

  • Microscope

    Compact fluorescent microscope. Images through the chip.

  • Staining Module

    Rotary stage where up to four slides are inserted and clamped against the COMET™ Chip. Its unique design allows for staining and imaging parallelization.

  • Image Viewer

    Following image acquisition, the Viewer can open the resulting image files. The software facilitates visualization and exports the data for image analysis.


Fully automated multiomics on COMET™

Perform true spatial multiomics assays, simultaneously detecting any RNA and protein targets on the same tissue section using RNAscope™ HiPlex Pro and off-the-shelf, non-conjugated primary antibodies, with subcellular resolution.

A fully automated workflow from target probe hybridization to multiomic imaging, requiring no user intervention, facilitates a deeper understanding of cellular processes and disease mechanisms.

Kick-start your assay development
