The Akoya Summit Fall Series 2021

Webinar | October 22, 2021 | 9 AM PDT, 12 PM EDT

Our Akoya Summit virtual event showcases researchers from academia and industry using the PhenoCyclerᵀᴹ (formerly CODEX®) and PhenoImagerᵀᴹ (formerly Phenopticsᵀᴹ) platformsIn the series of talks below you can learn about Dr. Zoltan Laszik’s research with PhenoCycler as a nephrologist at University of California San Francisco and Dr. Abhishek Aggarwal’s work using the PhenoImager HT (formerly Vectra® Polarisᵀᴹ) in solid tumor biology. Dr. Avik Mukerhjee, Technical Application Scientist at Akoya, reviews analytical capabilities that are offered by both the PhenoCycler and PhenoImager platforms.
