Vectra® automated quantitative pathology imaging system, is a TRIP-operated automated imaging system, that accurately measures protein expressions and morphometric characteristics on whole slides or in distinct tissue regions of interest. Imaged tissue sections can be labeled with immunofluorescent (IF) or immunohistochemical (IHC) stains, or with conventional stains such as H&E and trichrome. When using IF or IHC stains, one or multiple proteins can be measured on a per tissue, per cell, or per cell compartment (e.g. nuclear, cytoplasmic) basis - even when signals are spectrally similar, in the same cell compartment or obscured by autofluorescence.
Compatible with inForm® or Nuance® software, Vectra automates quantitative data acquisition and then streamlines data extraction on up to 200 slides in a single batch run. inForm combines powerful tissue segmentation algorithms with an intuitive learn-by-example interface that users can train to identify specific tissue segments. Once trained, the program locates the specified regions automatically in all images. Automated acquisition in a batch run involves 4x or 10x whole slide scans followed by 20x or 40x high-magnification imaging for regions of interest or whole tissue. Both inForm® or Nuance® software analysis applications require training and reserved access.
