Standard BioTools Hyperion XTi Imaging System

Standard BioTools launched the Hyperion XTi Imaging system at the American Association for Cancer Research annual meeting. The company said that this next-generation tissue-imaging system detects single-cell data five times faster than previous iterations, and that users can image up to 40 slides per day. Powered by the company's Imaging Mass Cytometry technology, the system uses a one-step staining and detection method to detect more than 40 biomarkers from any tissue sample without autofluorescence interference, time-consuming cyclic protocols, or complicated experimental designs. For longitudinal and multi-site studies, the system can standardize workflows with batch staining of samples that can be shipped or stored for processing later, Standard BioTools said.
