Vectra Polaris Automated Quantitative Pathology Imaging System

Imaging system which enables identification and quantification of multiple biomarkers


The fully automated Vectra Polaris Quantitative Pathology Imaging System provides researchers unparalleled speed, performance, and versatility for extracting proteomic and morphometric information from intact FFPE tissue sections or TMAs. Vectra Polaris is the only instrument on the market that goes beyond basic functions, like whole slide, brightfield, and fluorescence imaging. It integrates the power of multispectral imaging in a simplified elegant workflow.

Coupled with the proven power of inForm® image analysis software, this multiplexing capability enables identification and quantification of multiple biomarkers and reveals spatial context within a digital workflow to assist researchers with better, faster decisions.

For assistance with all slide staining, multiplexing and histology advice, including cutting and staining services please contact Mike Millar


Key Benefits:

  • Easily detect and measure multiple overlapping biomarkers (six or more) within a single tissue section with state of the art multispectral imaging
  • High speed digital whole-slide scanning at 10x – 40x in brightfield or fluorescence
  • Enclosed system with built in touchless automation allows the visualization, analysis, quantification and phenotyping of immune cells in situ with enhanced security and reliability
  • Automatic identification of specific tissue types using integrated inForm image analysis software
