Question: Can staining methods other than H&E be used with the Visium Solution?
Answer: H&E and immunofluorescence (IF) staining are currently compatible with Visium. Customers have the option to choose either H&E for morphology or IF for protein detection to pair with their Visium gene expression analysis. We performed limited in-house testing with Cresyl Violet (Nissl) staining and observed a reduction in assay performance. We have not tested compatibility with other staining methods.
