10x Genomics obtained FFPE mouse kidney and brain tissue microarray (TMA) sections from Acepix Biosciences. The TMA cores of 1 mm diameter were laid out in a 5x5 grid layout with 1 mm edge to edge spacing. Acepix Biosciences sectioned the TMA block according to their standard protocol. Tissue section of 5 µm was placed on a standard glass slide, and H&E-stained following deparaffinization. Sections were coverslipped with 85% glycerol, imaged using a color camera, decoverslipped, followed by destaining & 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 with 11 mm Capture Area. The probe extension and library construction steps follow the standard Visium for FFPE workflow outside of the instrument.

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
  • Camera: iDS (VS-264C) color camera with 3.45 um pixel size

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