Product Details

Opal™ is a practical workflow for the simultaneous detection of up to six tissue biomarkers plus nuclear counterstain within a single image, similar to standard immunohistochemistry (IHC).
The Opal™ 7 Immunology Discovery Kit includes all the critical workflow reagents to enable phenotyping of T cells, B cells and macrophages, with 3 open channels for user-selected targets, using 6-plex fluorescent immunohistochemistry:

  • Antibodies to CD4, CD8 & CD68
  • Antibody diluent
  • 6-plex fluorescent IHC detection reagents
  • Spectral DAPI
  • Antigen retrieval buffers

 

To develop an IHC custom panel for investigation of the immune response, the user pairs this kit with antibodies to 3 additional targets of interest. This kit was configured and validated for multispectral imaging on the Vectra and Mantra Systems. Contains enough reagents for 6-plex immunostain of 50 slides.

  • Optimized panel for assessment of immune cells in intact FFPE tumor tissue
  • Shortest path to results
  • Part of the Phenoptics™ workflow for immunophenotyping of solid tumors
  • Flexibility for detection of your targets of interest in multiplex panels
  • Faster time-to-results

Slide Fixation
  • 10% NBF for 20 minutes
  • Di H2O wash
Antigen Retrieval
  • AR6 or AR9 MWT
  • Cool to RT for at least 15 minutes
Blocking
  • Di H2O rinse, TBST rinse
  • PAP pen barrier
  • Incubate tissue for 10 minutes in blocking solution at RT
Primary Antibody
  • Remove blocker and add primary antibody
  • Rinse with TBST, then wash 3 times for two minutes each in TBST
Secondary Antibody
  • Incubation 10 minutes at RT
  • Rinse with TBST and wash 3 times for 2 minutes each
Opal Reagent
  • Opal fluorophore incubation for ten minutes at RT
  • Rinse with TBST and wash 3 times for 2 minutes each
MWT
  • Rinse slides with AR6 or AR9
  • Place slides in microwave-safe jar, perform MWT
  • Cool to RT for at least 15 minutes
Spectral DAPI
  • Use AR6 for MWT prior to DAPI for removal of any unbound fluor
