Lunaphore highlights novel spatial biology research at SITC 2021
Lunaphore , a Swiss life sciences company developing technology to enable spatial biology in every laboratory, today announced new research from collaborators at the University of Birmingham, who characterized the inflammatory response associated with a complication from maternal COVID-19 infection, using COMET™, Lunaphore’s all-in-one staining and imaging platform for high-throughput, hyperplex immunofluorescence. The results will be presented at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) 36th Annual Meeting, taking place November 10-14, 2021 virtually and in-person at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Lunaphore will also hold product demonstrations of LabSat® and COMET™ at booth #408.

Using spatial biology tools to characterize COVID-19 placentitis
A proportion of maternal COVID-19 infections are complicated by COVID-19 placentitis, an inflammatory response that often leads to fetal death. However, there has been limited research to-date on the processes that drive this condition and its underlying pathology.
In a sponsored symposium, Matthew Pugh, FRCPath, of the University of Birmingham will discuss how his team used the Lunaphore COMET™ system to conduct a multiplex immunohistochemistry analysis of 30 markers to characterize the processes that drive COVID-19 placentitis. Utilizing spatial biology methods, the present study found that COVID-19 placentitis is characterized by direct infection of the villous trophoblast, histiocytic intervillousitis and associated CXCL10 & interferon mediated inflammation1 .
