Question: What sample types can be used with Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression assays?
Answer: In theory, all human or mouse tissues that express mRNAs that can be detected with our Transcriptome Probe Panels can be analyzed using Visium CytAssist for FFPE, Fresh Frozen (FF), or Fixed Frozen (FxF) assays. For FFPE samples, tissue blocks with a DV200 ≥30% are recommended. For FF assay, tissue blocks with RIN ≥4 are recommended. For FxF samples, tissue blocks with a DV200 ≥50% are recommended. Only mouse tissues have been validated and are currently supported with the FxF assay. The tissues that have been found to be compatible with these Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression assays via in-house experiments can be found on the Support Site.
