10x Genomics Visium Spatial Gene Expression Solution
10x Genomics has launched its Visium Spatial Gene Expression solution. The assay provides researchers the ability to map where gene activity is occurring in a tissue specimen, with whole-transcriptome analysis of up to hundreds of thousands of cells on a tissue section.
Visium builds on earlier products from Spatial Transcriptomics, which 10x acquired in 2018, offering five times more spots within a capture area while reducing the time it takes from three days to one day.
Visium also includes turn-key software and requires access to an optical microscope.
