Tau Isoforms in Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy: Paving the Way for Diagnostics, Targeted Therapy

The link between contact sports and chronic traumatic encephalopathy has gained increased scrutiny in recent years, largely due to research into the subject by Dr. Ann McKee of Boston University. In this post, we discuss a recent publication from Dr. McKee's team which used multiplex immunohistochemistry in...

Ultra-High Plex Spatial Biomarker Imaging in Neuroscience Research

We invited our Senior Applications Scientist, Oliver Braubach, PhD, to write a guest post for our blog. Prior to joining Akoya, Oliver spent 12 years in Neuroscience research and built up a career that focused mainly on imaging technologies. In this post, he discusses how multiplex immunofluorescence facilitates neuroscience research. He also provides an overview of our recent poster presentations at the FENS 2020 Virtual Forum.

36-Plex CODEX Breast Cancer FFPE Panel Recapitulates Published Findings

Cancer research and pathology relies heavily on formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissues from patients. While FFPE samples are easy and cost-effective to store, they are often incompatible with contemporary omics techniques, like single-cell sequencing. The CODEX® platform overcomes this limitation...
