RareCyte Orion Instrument

RareCyte has launched a new spatial biology analysis platform called Orion. The system is based on a patented and proprietary microscopy technology that allows comprehensive phenotypic profiling and spatial analysis of the tissue microenvironment at what the company claims are much faster speeds and with more efficiency than existing technologies.

The platform includes the Orion instrument and associated TissuePlex reagents. The instrument images an entire pathology slide at high speed and high resolution in 21 fluorescence channels. Companion TissuePlex panels are shipped as customizable catalog labelling kits. Customers can also access the technology through RareCyte laboratory services and other specified programs.
