The tumor microenvironment is composed of highly heterogeneous niches, often with varying degrees of immune infiltration. The spatial distribution of immune cells with respect to malignant cells can directly impact patient prognosis and overall survival outcomes. The Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression assay uses a whole transcriptome probe-based approach, termed RTL, to detect and quantify mRNA expression with spatial context.
