Immuno-oncology 4-plex panel & digital pathology (Visiopharm®)

We are happy to develop your customized multiplex IHC protocols for your preferred combination of targets upon request.

Using a four-marker antibody panel, we have implemented a multiplex IHC method allowing for chromogenic multicolor detection of immune checkpoint ligand PD-L1, T lymphocyte markers CD4 and CD8, and regulatory T cell marker FoxP3 in human FFPE tissue sections. The method runs fully automated on our Ventana Discovery Ultra platform and can be optimized for your desired type of tissue. For your highest output of information we perform digital image analysis (Visiopharm®) on multiplex-stained sections to allow for staining quantification, distribution, co-localization and more.

T cell-mediated immunity plays a critical role in the control of tumor development. An intricate network of interactions between tumor cells, effector T cells and regulatory T cells can keep T cell-mediated anti-tumor response in check, eventually allowing the tumor to evade the hosts immune system. Simultaneous analysis/investigation of both immune checkpoint and phenotyping markers by multiplex IHC provides insight into infiltration, relative localization, and potential interactions of different cell types. Therefore, multiplex IHC greatly supports immuno-oncology research and drug development.

A novel human ex-vivo burn model and the local coling effect of a bacterial nanocellulose-based wound dressing

TPL Path Labs is proud to have contributed with its histopathological expertise in a novel human ex-vivo burn model project:


Background: Burn wound progression is a significant problem as burns initially thought to be superficial can actually become full thickness over time. Cooling is an efficient method to reduce burn wound conversion. However, if the cooling agent is below room temperature, depending on the wound size the patient is at risk of hypothermia.
