Precise and Robust Immune Profiling: Validation of a Flexible Multiplex Immunofluorescence Workflow

1 hour

Relevant for


Description Though widely recognized that mIF assays have critical implications for clinical translation, validation of mIF staining that allows for flexibility in biomarker selection is a barrier for mIF integration into clinical practice. Join Yvette Cajigas and Angela Vasaturo, experts in assay development and biomarker strategy, and learn about a simple approach to evaluate sensitivity and reproducibility – without sacrificing the flexibility needed to answer biological questions required for evaluating specific treatment options. Take a deep dive into the world of multiplex immunofluorescence and see first-hand how Ultivue’s OmniVUE panels use its patented InSituPlex® technology to advance precision therapies in clinical trials.

Key Takeaways

Understand the challenge of mIF validation and its critical implications for clinical translation

Discover a simple method to assess sensitivity and reproducibility using the InSituPlex® (ISP) staining workflow without sacrificing flexibility

See how single markers in the multiplex ISP assay demonstrate high reproducibility and steric independence, making it a reliable approach.
