Clinical Pathologists Can Now Utilize Dual Staining with BOND ChromoPlex II Dual Detection Kit, Reducing Need for Patient Re-biopsy

Leica Biosystems new dual detection kit enables clinicians to get more information out of their tissue samples.

9th June 2023, NEWCASTLE, UK – Leica Biosystems is pleased to announce the launch of BOND ChromoPlex II Dual Detection, a plug-and-play dual detection system designed to deliver IHC and ISH dual staining on BOND-MAX and BOND-III.

Dual staining enables clinicians or researchers to stain a single tissue sample with multiple markers, providing new insights to what is occurring at the cellular level. Staining a piece of tissue with more than one chromogen maximizes the amount of data acquired from a tissue sample, meaning that patients may be less likely to need to return for additional biopsies.

The BOND ChromoPlex II Dual Detection Kit includes high-contrast red and green chromogens, designed for identification and colocalization of antigens when highly expressed within the tissue. The kit can be used with any existing mouse and/or rabbit primary antibodies, eliminating the need for antibody cocktails.

Additional benefits of the BOND ChromoPlex II Dual Detection Kit:

  • Mouse and rabbit antibodies can be used in any combination
  • 4.5-hour turnaround time on a BOND-III and 6-hour turnaround time on a BOND-MAX, based on a 30-slide run

“The BOND ChromoPlex II Dual Detection Kit provides tissue sample efficiency and on-slide spatial relationship data without compromising a laboratory’s workflow,” said Dr. Rob Monroe, Chief Medical Officer at Leica Biosystems. “This kit was ready-made for the clinical setting and keeps our customers’ needs in mind.”

For In Vitro Diagnostics Use. BOND ChromoPlex II Dual Detection Kit is currently available in North America.
