Question: How can I more easily place tissues within the allowable area?
Answer: Utilize the Visium CytAssist Tissue Slide Alignment Instruction, Quick Reference Cards to trace the allowable area with a permanent marker on the back of each blank glass slide. Additional details on Tissue Section Placement are provided in the Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression for FFPE – Tissue Preparation Guide.
After performing the 3 hour drying step at 42°C and before Deparaffinization, remove the ink with a 100% ethanol-soaked laboratory wipe.
Ensure the ink is completely removed prior to Deparaffinization and avoid touching the tissue when performing the above steps.
