Mantra 2™ Quantitative Pathology Workstation
The Mantra 2™ Quantitative Pathology Workstation is ideal for labs doing assay development and require a dedicated instrument to complement their PhenoImager Fusion and PhenoImager HT workflows.
The Mantra 2™ Quantitative Pathology Workstation incorporates multispectral imaging technology, image acquisition and analysis with the inForm® software, and can be used with a variety of stains including Akoya’s Opal™ reagent kits.
Traditional methods like flow cytometry and next-generation sequencing allow you to phenotype and quantify immune cells in homogenized samples, but you lose critical spatial information and context. Meanwhile, standard pathological analyses can deliver morphology data but do not allow the analysis of complex phenotypes.
With multispectral imaging, you can phenotype and quantify immune cells from images of FFPE tissue sections, maintaining tissue architecture, cellular spatial relationships and morphological context. This capability available on the Mantra 2™ provides spatial information, allowing for a better understanding of the role and types of immune cells within both the tumor and the tumor microenvironment so that new cancer immunotherapy treatments may be identified and researched.
