Xenium in situ | Pushing spatial boundaries

Current cell biology techniques involve removing cells from their natural tissue environment and storing them in laboratory containers. In situ analysis promises to change all of that, allowing the examination of cellular and molecular functions in their natural environment. In this new video, Mats Nilsson, PhD, director of the Science for Life Laboratory at Stockholm University, discusses how he worked on developing in situ technology that could analyze molecules directly in cells—in their native tissue position—while dramatically increasing the number of RNAs that could be studied simultaneously.
