Spatial phenotyping is the simultaneous visualization and quantification of dozens of biomarkers in situ using a single sample while maintaining cellular and sub-cellular resolution. Analyzing multiple proteins in conjunction within a single tissue section can reveal unexpected patterns and associations that are not evident with other methodologies.
Spatial phenotyping also allows the investigation of nuanced behaviors a cell exhibits in its native cellular microenvironment. Identification of distinct spatial cellular behaviors is a valuable tool in the identification of potential therapeutic targets and is predictive of the morbidity and mortality associated with a given tumor.
This application note from Akoya Biosciences introduces an ultra-high-plex single-cell spatial phenotyping study of human FFPE head-and-neck tumor tissue aimed at unveiling orchestrated and complex tumor heterogeneity, demonstrating the PhenoCycler-Fusion technology that can provide an integrated view of the pathways that regulate tumor progression.
