Introducing a core facility perspective on innovative technologies and how they enable spatial biology research
Watch the interview with Dr. Charlotte Stadler, Head of the National Spatial Proteomics Facility and Co-Director at the Spatial and Single-Cell Biology Platform SciLifeLab, in which she describes her facility’s first-hand experience with the COMET™ platform. In this interview, she discusses why this new technology has enhanced her lab’s ability to perform hyperplex spatial biology experiments and to provide services to support research projects by researchers and clinicians.
Watch the video and find out:
- How her facility uses novel, cutting-edge methods to study proteins in tissues and cells with multiplex immunofluorescence.
- How COMET™ complements other technologies installed at the facility at SciLifeLab.
- For what purpose, Dr. Charlotte Stadler recommends COMET™ to other core facilities, researchers, and clinicians.
Quick and reliable spatial biology data generation with an automated stainer
We met with Dr. Spencer Watson, Cancer Researcher, to talk about how integrating spatial biology automation in his lab has helped accelerate his research. Dr. Watson is studying the role of the tumor microenvironment in therapeutic resistance.

User-friendly spatial biology platform to study host-pathogen interactions with off-the-shelf reagents
We sat down with Dr. Matthew Pugh, MRC Clinical Research Training Fellow, Institute of Immunology and Immunotherapy, from the University of Birmingham, to discuss his experience using COMET™. Dr. Pugh developed a customized, fully automated 34-plex panel using the platform in only a few weeks to characterize immune cells and host SARS-CoV-2-infected tissues.
In this video, he explains:
- Why is multiplex immunofluorescence crucial to study viral infections and their effects on host cells?
- Why he would recommend COMET™ to other pathologists?
- What advice he would give to people getting into automated staining and imaging technology?
