Using histological techniques to visualize the distribution of phosphorylated tau protein, a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease, can help researchers better understand disease mechanisms and assess the level of pathology in post-mortem tissue. LifeCanvas’s methods and technologies are fully compatible with human tissue samples, thus providing an unparalleled window into human clinical specimen analysis and disease diagnosis.
Phospho-tau labeling of human frontal cortex tissue isolated post-mortem from a clinical patient with advanced Alzheimer’s disease demonstrates widespread labeling of this pathological hallmark. Tissue courtesy of Kymry Jones and Prof. Carol Miller, USC.
