Question: If the tissue is much larger than the Capture Area, how can they ensure that the area of interest within the tissue is going to generate data?
Answer: After performing staining and imaging, the customer can mark or trace the area of interest on the back of the tissue slide for help with centering it within the Gasket of the Tissue Slide Cassette.
We would recommend removing the annotation prior to loading the tissue slide on the CytAssist instrument as it may affect automatic tissue registration.
- Customers can use the manual alignment process if they desire to keep the annotation to aid with centering the tissue on the Tissue Slide Stage.
