Question: How many tissue sections can be tested on a Visium slide?
Answer: The number of tissue sections will depend upon which Visium slide you are working with. There are three Visium slide options:
- The Visium Tissue Optimization Slide contains 8 capture areas for testing of seven different permeabilization times plus one area to be used for a cDNA synthesis positive control. Please refer to the Tissue Optimization User Guide for recommended tissue section slide arrangement.
- The Visium Gene Expression Slide contains 4 capture areas for running up to 4 tissue sections.
- The Visium Gateway Gene Expression slide contains 2 capture areas for running up to 2 tissue sections.
