The principle of iterative staining

Miltenyi Biotec’s MICS (multiparameter imaging cell screen) technology enables the simultaneous analysis of hundreds of markers on a single sample based on fluorescence microscopy. It uses the principle of iterative staining with different fluorochrome-conjugated antibodies to acquire microscopy data for a multitude of parameters without harming the sample. The iterative process comprises three main steps that are conducted by the MACSima™ Imaging System in a fully automated manner.

  1. Samples are stained with fluorochrome-conjugated antibodies  
  2. Epifluorescence images are acquired of the desired sample areas 
  3. The fluorescence signal is erased and the process restarts automatically
