Spatial Biology  

By employing various imaging modalities such as fluorescence microscopy, confocal microscopy, and multiplexed imaging, spatial biology aims to capture detailed spatial information, including subcellular localization, molecular interactions, and cellular architecture. Analyzing these spatial relationships provides insights into the complex mechanisms underlying biological processes, cell signaling, disease pathology, and the microenvironment's influence on cellular behavior.

Spatial biology in microscopy enables researchers to unravel intricate biological phenomena by examining biological entities within their spatial dimensions, allowing for a deeper comprehension of biological systems and paving the way for targeted therapeutic interventions.

At Biospective, our multidisciplinary R&D team is combining whole-section multiplex immunofluorescence images with machine-learning algorithms to perform high-dimensional phenotyping and explore the spatial relationships between various cell types. One example is our work to interrogate the relationship between β-amyloid plaques and the inflammatory microenvironment using our APP/PS1 mouse model of Alzheimer's disease.

What technologies does Biospective use for spatial biology?

We combine multiplex immunofluorescence, slide scanning, and quantitative digital image analysis using our PERMITS™ software to enable spatial biology analysis.

How can spatial biology facilitate drug development?

By improving our understanding of the spatial relationships between different processes (e.g. microglia with a senescent secretory phenotype and α-synuclein aggregation in neurons), we can identify the appropriate targets in animal models, as well as assess response to therapeutic intervention.

Can Biospective perform spatial biology analysis for my studies?

Absolutely. Our team will work with you to understand the questions that you are addressing and help implement appropriate solutions.
