Abstract: Advances in tissue-based technology in the past few years have created unprecedented opportunities to identify biomarkers and signatures of disease. The use of tissue phenotyping and multiplex immunofluorescence (mIF) assays offers several unique advantages over non-tissue based methods. By preserving the architectural features of the tumor, the spatial relationships between tumor cells and immune cells can be revealed. This allows a detailed characterization of specific cell phenotypes defined by co- or lack of expression of markers that may help in predicting clinical responses and mechanisms of resistance to therapy.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

How Ultivue has approached the development of a flexible system for mIF assay panels for scientists and clinicians

How advanced image analysis software can be applied to discover cell types, populations and morphological, spatial context

How whole slide image analysis of the tumor microenvironment can provide insight into the immune environment of specific cancer types
