See the Newest Multiplex Imaging Workflows in Action
A key method for cancer immunoprofiling on tissue samples is multiplex labeling of cancer cell phenotypes on a single tissue slide. UltiMapperTM kits, provided by Ulitvue, currently support the identification of up to 30 immune and cancer cell phenotypes directly associated with immune invasion, exhaustion, activation and evasion. UltiMapperTM kits are provided with an optimized protocol for fully automated use, enabling “single day sample to data” high-throughput experimentation using the ZEISS Axio Scan Z.1 slide scanner system.
Ultivue and ZEISS are showcasing the latest developments in a multiplex workflow that allows researchers to go from staining to analysis in a single work day with the steps below.

  • Slide setup and automated staining with the UltiMapper™ kits 
  • Imaging setup and scanning on the Zeiss Axio Scan Z.1
  • Image review and analysis with same day results

Join this free workshop and learn from industry experts and current users of the Ultimapper ™ workflow how to generate multiplexed protein marker data easily and simply in your lab.
