The Pathology Core Laboratory upgraded its existing Leica DM4000B imaging scope with a Leica DFC 7000 T imaging camera for optimized use. Customers may reserve the imaging scope for brightfield and fluorescent imaging needs.

Current or new customers from CHOP and the surrounding academic community can contact the Core for training on the new camera and software.

Additionally, the Core offers staining with the Ultivue four- or eight-panel InSituPlex assay staining kits using the Leica Bond Rx autostainer and imaging with an Aperio FL slide scanner. Scientists can perform fluorescent staining of up to eight targets from the assay's antibody marker list along with H&E staining on the same slide. This assay staining kits technology provide an alternative for customers who need to perform more targeted multiplexing experiments without the complexity and expense of higher plex options.

Save the date to join the Pathology Core on Feb. 28, 2024 to discuss advances with RNA in situ hybridization image analysis and combining antibody (protein) labelling.
