      Abstract:
      DATE: November 15, 2018
      TIME: 10:00am PST, 1:00pm EST
       
      Multiplex fluorescence immunohistochemistry offers a window into the biology of human disease, enabling the analysis of target protein expression in subsets of specific cells within the context of histopathological features of disease. However, the multiplexing capabilities of fluorescence IHC, using standard histology equipment, are subject to several technical challenges. This webinar will provide insight and examples of how the Ultivue InSituplex platform may be used to address several of the current challenges associated with multiplex fluorescence immunohistochemistry. It will focus on initial user experiences using the InSituPlex platform using automated IHC on the Leica Biosystems BOND RX and automated imaging with the Leica Biosystems Aperio Versa.
