Detail Information

The Vectra 3 automated quantitative pathology imaging system, together with the inForm® software, provides multispectral and automated multi-slide imaging of up to 6 slides to detect and measure weakly expressed and overlapping biomarkers in H&E, IHC or IF intact FFPE tissue sections or TMAs within a familiar digital pathology workflow.

Tissue sections or TMAs can be labeled with immunofluorescent (IF) or immunohistochemical (IHC) stains such as Opal, or with conventional stains such as H&E and trichrome. When using IF or IHC stains, 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, are located in the same cellular compartment or are obscured by autofluorescence.

Vectra 3 can also be used with the Phenochart whole slide contextual viewer with annotation capability into the digital workflow, where pathologists and technicians can navigate around slides and identify areas of interest for high-resolution multispectral acquisition. It accurately measures protein and biomarker expression and morphometric characteristics in intact tissue sections for translational studies.

Key Benefits:

  • Supports PerkinElmer’s Phenoptics workflow solution for cancer immunology research
  • Detects and measures multiple weakly expressed and overlapping biomarkers within a single H&E, IHC or IF tissue section and in TMAs
  • Visualizes, analyzes, quantifies and phenotypes immune cells in situ in solid tissues
  • Automated loading of up to 6 slides, with the Vectra Polaris® system available for higher throughput
  • Phenochart whole slide viewer for slide navigation provides context for identification of regions of interest within a digital pathology workflow
  • Automatic identification of specific tissue types using integrated inForm analysis software
