Akoya Biosciences PhenoCycler-Fusion System
Akoya Biosciences has launched the PhenoCycler-Fusion system for high-speed imaging of slides at single-cell and sub-cellular resolution. The platform combines the strengths of the firm's automated, high-multiplex cycling platform PhenoCycler (previously branded as Codex) and its high-speed imaging platform PhenoImager (previously branded as Phenoptics) into an integrated workflow. In addition to protein biomarkers, the system can detect RNA, using RNAScope assays developed in collaboration with Bio-Techne. It can detect more than 100 markers for deep spatial phenotyping and map every cell across a tissue section, including from FFPE slides. It is capable of processing more than 100 slides per week, according to the company.
