Accepted abstracts during the AACR conference will feature new data from a streamlined pre-optimized protocol enabling mIF staining on mouse tissue for an improved workflow to investigate T-cell infiltration and additional analysis of the tumor immune microenvironment (TiME) to address the mechanisms of action of immune-related drugs in preclinical syngeneic or GEMM mouse models.

The company will also spotlight an early access program for mouse researchers interested in exploring the use of advanced pre-clinical tools to probe the dynamic nature of events occurring in the TiME. Additional abstracts feature the new flexible mIF assays (FlexVUE™ panels) for discerning relevant distributions of infiltrating immune cells in tumors coupled with UltiStacker® software for producing detailed spatial characterizations of specific cell phenotypes.

Further datasets showcase the integrated capabilities from Fluidigm and Visiopharm to demonstrate a unique tissue phenotyping workflow combining complementary methods that can unravel the complexity of the tumor microenvironment.

Ultivue’s newest workflow to be highlighted at this year’s AACR will be available through the Company’s CLIA services lab and features a multi-omics analysis that demonstrates the versatility of Ultivue’s InSituPlex® technology (ISP) through an integrated workflow for co-detection of protein and RNA on a single tissue section.

Ultivue will also host its 2nd annual Biomarker Insights Summit on April 8th, 2022, ahead of the annual AACR meeting. This symposium is designed to promote thought leadership and has been exclusively curated for those working towards the eradication of cancer via immuno-oncology approaches. Scientists from AstraZeneca, Takeda, Gilead, Merck, Bayer, and many more will be onsite to share successes and lessons learned to better inform therapeutic efforts and explore how innovative digital pathology insights can provide benefit to clinical trials.

The companies have already been working together since early 2021 to adapt Aignostics’ client platform to support visualization and analysis regrading some of Ultivue’s products and services, as well as provisioning of results and corresponding reports. The resulting co-developed platform will now be made available to joint clients.  Additionally, proof of concept work conducted on the Ultivue 12-plex Immunophenotyping biomarker panel in over 1,000 clinical NSCLC cases has demonstrated encouraging results for the capacity of AI-based analysis of multiplexed images for more consistent and reproducible readouts at scale. These results will be published later this year and respective AI models made available via the platform.

The companies are now expanding their relationship under a co-marketing agreement to offer the multiplex immunofluorescence (mIF) platform to their respective biotech and pharma clients, initially for research use, with a GCP-compliant version to follow later this year. Moreover, Ultivue and Aignostics will offer AI-powered image analysis services within the platform via Aignostics “Explainable AI” approach for the consistent and precise analysis of mIF cohorts at scale, for both translational research and clinical trial services in Ultivue’s CLIA accredited clinical research laboratory.  “We are excited to extend our workflow offering to include mIF AI for highly automated image analysis by partnering with Aignostics” says Florian Leiss, VP Digital Health at Ultivue. “Improved viewing capabilities enable us to interactively explore the interplay of mIF-labeled cell populations in the histological context of same-slide H&E.”

“We believe that development of Ultivue’s assays with our AI-powered image analysis will create insights from data at scale that are unprecedented in spatial biology today. We are excited to start offering this approach to our clients for translational science and clinical trials” said Viktor Matyas, CEO of Aignostics.

Besides offering research and development services to its clients, Ultivue and Aignostics will also develop and jointly certify products for the standardized analysis of certain Ultivue products in prospective clinical trials, that will become available in the future and are aimed at paving the way for more widespread use of these technologies in both clinical trials and into clinical routine.
