The present invention provides compositions and methods for the detection of nucleic acid sequences associated with chromosomal aberrations. The invention may, for example, eliminate the use of, or reduce the dependence on formamide in hybridization. Compositions for use in the invention include an aqueous composition comprising at least one nucleic acid sequence and at least one polar aprotic solvent in an amount effective to denature double-stranded nucleotide sequences.

Methods and apparatuses for analyzing digital pathology images are provided. The methods and apparatuses may provide estimates of staining intensity and proportion score in regions of interest within an image. Digital pathology images may be scored according to these metrics. The methods and apparatuses disclosed herein utilize various predetermined thresholds, parameters, and models to increase efficiency and permit accurate estimation of characteristics of a stained tissue sample.


The present invention relates to a method of biological labeling that occurs via a free radical chain reaction. The labeling occurs due to deposition of a detectable reporter molecule from a media comprising a substance comprising at least two moieties of a peroxidase enzyme substrate (termed herein cross-linker) in a target site comprising peroxidase activity and a biological marker. The labeling reaction described herein may generally be used to detect targets in a host of experimental schemes for detecting and visualizing a biological or chemical target, including immunohistochemistry (IHC), in situ hybridization (ISH), antibody-based staining methods such as ELISA, Southern, Northern, and Western blotting, and others.

An apparatus (100) for processing a biological sample (101). The biological sample being arranged on a first planar surface (102) of a carrier (103). The apparatus comprises a second planar surface (104) arranged substantially parallel to said first planar surface and at a first distance from said first planar surface, said second planar surface are arranged at an angle (A) greater than zero degree from the horizontal plane (HP); supply means (126, 131, 220) for supplying an amount (105) of a liquid that is to be applied to said biological sample. The first planar surface and the second planar surface are configured to be arranged in a second distance from each other, said second distance being such that said supplied amount of liquid is distributed over said biological sample when said first planar surface and second planar surface are brought to said second distance from each other.


Disclosed is a microwave heater and a method of heating. The microwave heater includes a non-modal interplate microwave applicator and may include a nonresonant enclosure. The non-modal interplate microwave applicator is configured to receive therein a load to be heated by microwaves radiated from the non-modal interplate microwave applicator.


The present invention describes novel methods to generate MHC multimers and methods to improve existing and new MHC multimers. The invention also describes improved methods for the use of MHC multimers in analysis of T-cells in samples including diagnostic and prognostic methods. Furthermore the use of MHC multimers in therapy are described, e.g. anti-tumour and anti-virus therapy, including isolation of antigen specific T-cells capable of inactivation or elimination of undesirable targeT-cells or isolation of specific T-cells capable of regulation of other immune cells.

The invention provides compositions and methods for the detection of targets in a sample; in particular, an in situ hybridization (ISH) sample. Probes and detectable labels may be provided in multiple layers in order to increase the flexibility of a detection system, and to allow for amplification to enhance the signal from a target. The layers may be created by incorporating probes and detectable labels into larger molecular units that interact through nucleic acids base-pairing, including peptide-nucleic acid (PNA) base-pairing. Optional non-natural bases allow for degenerate base pairing schemes. The compositions and methods are also compatible with immunohistochemistry (IHC), immunocytochemistry (ICC), flow cytometry, enzyme immuno-assays (EIA), enzyme linked immuno-assays (ELISA), blotting methods (e.g. Western, Southern, and Northern), labeling inside electrophoresis systems or on surfaces or arrays, and precipitation, among other general detection assay formats. The invention is also compatible with many different types of targets, probes, and detectable labels.
