Question: What tissue types can be used with the Visium Spatial Gene Expression for FFPE solution?
Answer: In theory, all human tissues that express mRNAs that can be detected with our Transcriptome Probe Panels can be analyzed using Visium for FFPE. We recommend performing RNA Quality Assessment to obtain the DV200% (the percentage of RNA fragments >200 nucleotides) prior to running the Visium for FFPE assay. We recommend using tissue blocks with a DV200 ≥50% with this assay. Blocks with DV200 <50% may yield data, but performance will likely be lower and less predictable.
The tissues that have been tested with Visium for FFPE via in-house experiments can be found on the Support Site.
