Indica Labs ISH-IHC measures one IHC stain and up to two chromogenic and/or silver-labeled DNA or RNA ISH probes on a cell-by-cell basis. This allows the user to rapidly contextualize the corresponding protein and gene expression profile of every cell across the tissue. The HALO ISH-IHC module is designed to work with up to 5 stains, including a nuclear stain and up to 4 IHC biomarkers or ISH probes and supports the H-score protocol for RNAscope as recommended by the manufacturer, ACD, a Bio-techne brand.
The module reports numerous outputs including, but not limited to: number of IHC positive cells in total and by cell compartment, Average IHC OD and average IHC OD by cell compartment, percentage IHC positive total and by cell compartment, number and percentage of probe 1 and/or probe 2 positive cells, probe 1 and probe 2 copies per cell and area per cell, cell score for probe 1 and probe 2 (0, +1, +2, +3 and +4), total H-score for each probe, total cells and percentage of total cells positive for IHC marker and probe 1 and/or probe 2 (dual and triple positive cells). Histograms are automatically generated representing the frequency distribution of probes per cell [Figure 1] and RNAscope cell scoring [Figure 2] as shown below.
Figure 1 shows a distribution curve of probe number on a cell by cell basis, in this example most cells were shown to have between 0-5 copies per cell.
Figure 2. This bar chart shows the numbers of cells that were categorized as 0, 1+, 2+, 3+ and 4+ respectively. The chart shows that a slim majority of cells were positive for RNA probe expression.
