Multiplex IHC allows investigators to characterize the tumor microenvironment (TME) by staining up to six biomarkers on one tissue section.  Experimental Histopathology (EH) staff use automated OPAL (PerkinElmer) workflow on the Leica Bond Rx staining platform.  Using this method the best antibodies can be selected based on performance with no need to worry about cross-reactivity.  Single cell co-expression can be confirmed while retaining morphological context and conserving precious tissue samples. 

Multiplex image acquisition using the Perkin Elmer Vectra 3.0 Automated Imaging Platform is a collaborative effort coordinated between EH staff and investigators. Images obtained in this way can be used in conjunction with HALO Multiplex and Highplex Image Analysis Modules to analyze on a cell-by cell basis, selecting regions of interest throughout tissue sections.

The following is a list of antibodies available. Use the specific mIHC form to request service.
