IONpath's MIBIscope multiplexed ion beam imaging system (MIBI) allows researchers to image 40+ biomarkers in tissue with high resolution, high sensitivity, and high throughput. MIBI utilizes secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) to detect metal-tagged antibodies that correspond to immune markers and tumor cells within the tumor microenvironment. The high resolution achieved by the MIBI allows for accurate cell segmentation and subsequent cell phenotyping and enumeration. In addition, cell segmentation allows for various types of spatial analysis to be performed such as nearest neighbor, adjacent cell, and determining average distances of cells to certain microenvironment features like tumor-stromal boundaries and vesicles. In addition to offering instrumentation, reagents, and image analysis software, IONpath has recently launched its Research Services program where projects utilizing MIBI technology can be run on a contract basis.
