Question: What tissue types are compatible with the Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression solution?
Answer: The Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression solution is compatible with Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE), Fresh Frozen (FF), and Fixed Frozen (FxF) tissues. The solution was designed to transfer probes to Visium Slides allowing customers to use tissue slides they are most comfortable working with.
We expect most human and mouse FFPE or Fresh Frozen tissues to be compatible with the respective Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression assay. Similarly we expect most mouse tissues will be compatible with the Fixed Frozen assay. Customers can consult the appropriate Tested Tissue List available on the 10x Support Site to understand the types of tissues tested in-house.
The Tested Tissue List includes tissues that were successful during product development but also those that were challenging and require further optimization. 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.
The Tested Tissue Lists are linked below:
- Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression for FFPE
- Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression for Fresh Frozen
- Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression for Fixed Frozen
