Multiplexed immunofluorescence imaging of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) specimens mounted on glass slides allow the identification of multiple cell phenotypes while retaining spatial and morphological context.

Multiplex immunofluorescence protocols have already been developed and validated for mouse tissues. Immunophenotyping analysis reliably depicts the immune landscape of cancer tissues that has been demonstrated to influence cancer development and progression as well as to have an impact on therapy responsiveness and resistance.

Here, we describe a method for multiplexed fluorescence image analysis, enabling analysis of mouse cancer morphology and cell phenotypes in FFPE sections.
