Spatial Phenotyping with Akoya Biosciences
GeneWorks is happy to announce that we have partnered with Akoya Biosciences® to bring you an exciting technology for spatial biology.
Akoya offers two complementary platforms:
CODEX® Solution for hypothesis-free biomarker discovery.
Phenoptics™ Solution for hypothesis-driven biomarker discovery and high-throughput translational research.
Why Spatial Biology?
Traditional immunohistochemistry (IHC) preserves spatial context but is limited to 2 to 3 biomarkers per sample. Next-generation sequencing enables the analysis of multiple biomarkers but the spatial context of the tissue is lost.
Spatial biology (multiplex IHC) addresses these limitations by enabling the analysis of multiple biomarkers in a tissue section while preserving their spatial context to visualise how they organise and interact to influence disease progression and treatment response.
Phenoptics™ - Simultaneously detect 8 biomarkers plus DAPI within a single tissue section.
