Visium with CytAssist

10X Genomics Spatial Gene Expression samples are now being processed on the Visium CytAssist located at the Gene Expression Center. TRIP will be assisting with the first steps of the Visium with CytAssist protocol: Histology, RNA extraction from FFPE blocks used for QC, helping to find a pathologist for ROI selection (if needed) and Visium H&E image scanning.
