Omicsveu, known for spatial multiplex multiomics, has introduced a fully automated system for the Hyperion Imaging System’s multiplex immunohistochemistry (IHC) protocols developed and validated in collaboration with scientists at The University of Sydney‘s prestigious Charles Perkins Centre, Sydney, Australia. This staining automation system utilizes the NanoVIP.

Tissue multiplexing technology has changed proteomics profiling, allowing for the simultaneous detection of multiple protein markers from a single tissue section. However, current technologies for multiplex proteomics involve manual steps that can be time consuming, labor intensive, expensive, and inconsistent.

Using NanoVIP, an automated, slide-based staining system by Omicsveu, with manufacturer-supplied protocols and reagents reduced hands-on time of the Hyperion protocol to less than 20 minutes and reagent costs by 80%, as it only uses 25µL of antibody for a single sample. Further, the NanoVIP plug-and-play staining automation system doesn’t require highly skilled operators to get optimal results.

Results are summarized in the table below. 

Adrian Smith, technical director at Sydney Cytometry (Centenary Institute and The University of Sydney), was pleased with the results of using NanoVIP for the automated preparation of tissue sample slides. “We are very impressed with the instrument (and the support), and I’m excited to see what our researchers at Sydney Cytometry will do with it,” says Smith.
