Question: Does Visium Spatial Gene Expression for FFPE require a Tissue Optimization experiment?
Answer: The Visium for FFPE assay was developed specifically for formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissues and was designed with the aim of standardizing permeabilization conditions.
- The assay does not require a Tissue Optimization experiment to determine optimal permeabilization time prior to the Visium for FFPE Gene Expression workflow.
- We expect most human and mouse FFPE tissues to be compatible with the Visium Spatial Gene Expression FFPE Solution. Customers can consult the Tested Tissue List on the Support Site to get a sense of types of tissues tested in-house.
