Masterclass Webinar: Challenging Multiplex IHC Image Analysis in HALO®

Date: 23 February 2023

Time: 8:00 – 9:00 PST | 11:00 – 12:00 EST | 16:00 – 17:00 GMT

Location: Webinar

Learn advanced multiplex IHC workflows and how to manage challenging multiplex assays

Summary

In this 60-minute webinar, we discuss best practices and optimization techniques for advanced quantitative multiplex immunohistochemical (mIHC) image analysis. First, we will present a series of mIHC assays where various chromogen combinations were tested on an assay comprised of three biomarkers and hematoxylin. From this dataset, we discuss which assays are appropriate for image analysis with our HALO® Multiplex IHC module, which are not, and why.
Two alternative approaches for analyzing mIHC will also be demonstrated including a serial stain workflow to convert brightfield images into pseudo-fluorescence images followed by analysis with Highplex FL and a HALO AI-based approach where cell phenotyping is used to identify cells with co-localization of specific stains. We will discuss advantages, disadvantages and use cases for each workflow.

Learning Objectives

  • Advance your brightfield image deconvolution for mIHC analysis with tips and tricks
  • See examples of successful 3-plex chromogenic image analysis as well as images that are problematic and learn from common challenges
  • Learn how to perform a serial stain image analysis workflow to convert multiplexed immunohistochemistry to pseudo-flourescent images.  
  • Learn advantages of AI-based phenotyping and how to perform it with HALO AI
