Question:What tissue types are compatible with Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression solutions?
Answer: The assay was developed specifically for Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) or Fresh-Frozen (FF) tissues. It was designed to transfer probes to Visium Slides so customers can use tissue slides they’re most comfortable working on.
We expect most human and mouse FFPE or FF tissues to be compatible with the Visium CytAssist for the FFPE solution. Customers can also consult the appropriate Tested Tissue List on the Support Site to understand the types of tissues tested in-house.
The Tested Tissue List includes tissues that were used successfully during development but also those that were challenging and still being optimized. This list is not a restrictive list of compatible tissues. Therefore, if a tissue of interest isn’t on this list, that doesn’t mean it’s incompatible with the solution; it's just not yet tested.
