Question: How long does the Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression for Fixed (FxF) assay take to perform?
Answer: Once tissue sections have been placed on compatible glass slides, the Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression for FxF workflow occurs over two days. The first day includes rehydration, H&E staining, imaging, destaining, and overnight probe hybridization. The second day includes completing the on-slide RNA Templated Ligation (RTL) steps, use of the Visium CytAssist instrument to transfer analytes from two Tissue Slides to a Visium Gene Expression slide, followed by off-slide library construction steps. Multiple stopping points have been built into both days of the workflow to maximize flexibility. Please refer to the product demonstrated protocols and user guide for specifics regarding storage conditions at each of these stopping points.
