Virtual Workshop: Akoya


2nd Dec 2020
09:00 - 13:00 GMT



Revealing Spatial Biology on Every Digital Slide

In this workshop, you’ll learn about the importance of multiplex biomarker analysis including how advances in multiplexed immunofluorescent imaging and analysis at any-scale, any-plex can reveal biological and spatial information.

Workshop Takeaways
  1. How Spatial Biology reveals cellular interactions across whole tissue sections,
  2. How automation can speed up discovery: Automating multiplexed immunofluorescence workflows from staining through analysis
  3. A deep understanding of how multispectral unmixing isolates desired signal from background autofluorescence
  4. How phenotypic spatial metrics can enable better prediction of immunological therapeutic
