The Cancer Imaging Shared Resource offers access to Definiens Tissue Studio 4.4 for biomarker and morphological profiling in histological images. Tissue Studio is an easy to use, robust, and powerful tool to automatically detect regions of interest based on user-defined criteria. It can distinguish cells and sub-cellular objects within target regions, and determine morphology and expression profiles per individual cell or cell compartment. It is compatible with brightfield or immunofluorescence images, whole tissue slides or tissue microarrays. Tissue Studio is compatible with most major file formats including Aperio (.svs), Hamamatsu (.ndpi), Leica (.scn), Roche Ventana (.bif), Zeiss (.czi), and Tiff. Slides can be scanned into a digital format using the Cancer Centers iScan Coreo AU brightfield microscope slide scanner.
