10x Genomics obtained FFPE human lung cancer tissue from Avaden Biosciences. The tissue was sectioned as described in the Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression for FFPE – Tissue Preparation Guide (CG000518). Tissue section of 5 µm was placed on a standard glass slide, then stained following the Deparaffinization, H&E Staining, Imaging & Decrosslinking Demonstrated Protocol (CG000520). The glass slide with tissue section was processed via Visium CytAssist instrument to transfer analytes to a Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression Slide v2, with 11 mm capture areas following the Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression Reagent Kits User Guide (CG000495).

  • Diagnosis: Lung Cancer, Neuroendocrine Carcinoma
  • Stage (AJCC): IB
  • TNM system: T2aN0MX
  • FFPE Block Age < 1 year
  • DV200: 73

The H&E image was acquired using Olympus VS200 Slide Scanning Microscope with these settings:

  • Olympus Objective magnification: 20x UPLXAPO Objective
  • Numerical Aperture: 0.8
  • ScopeLED light source: Xcite Novum
  • Camera: VS-264C
  • Exposure: 500 µs

From the H&E image, vascular invasion and some compressed hemorrhage portion in the tumor, along with a clear stromal boundary outside the solid tumor region can be observed.

Libraries were prepared following the Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression Reagent Kits for FFPE User Guide (CG000495).
