ACVP Exhibitor/Sponsor Hosted Sessions
Sunday, November 10, 2019
Location: Conference Room 14
San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter Hotel

Exhibitor/Sponsor Hosted Sessions are commercially supported educational sessions held in conjunction with the ACVP Annual Meeting.  Sessions do not offer RACE continuing education credits.

Hosted-Session: An Integrated Approach to High-throughput and High-dimension Multiplexing in Tissue with Single-cell Resolution
Company Profile: Instruments, Reagents, and Software for Imaging many biomarkers simultaneously in tissue sections.
Session Time: Sunday, November 10 -- 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon

Session Description: We will present strategies for imaging and analyzing multiple biomarkers in single tissue sections at different levels of dimensionality and throughput. We will discuss tissue staining using barcoded antibodies as opposed to using tyramide chemistry to iteratively label single markers. Strategies for imaging and analysis will be discussed.

Learner Objectives:
1) Identify the benefits and drawbacks of using barcoded antibodies vs amplification via tyramide;
2) Identify the difference between multispectral imaging with unmixing and fluorescence imaging using narrowband filters; and
3) Describe image analysis, including tissue and cell segmentation, phenotyping, scoring, and spatial metrics.


Hosted-Session: Demystifying Deep Learning AI and Digital Pathology
Company Name: AIFORIA, INC.
Company Profile: The Aiforia AI cloud-platform increases the speed and accuracy of analyzing medical images. To train AI models, you point out what you look for, the platform does the rest. Detect subtle changes, increase consistency and produce quantitative data starting today.
Session Time: Sunday, November 10 -- 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Session Description: Hands-on AI workshop: You will train your own AI model, live on ‘Aiforia Create’. Bring your laptop & mouse to learn how to annotate, train, and test neural networks. This will be run as a friendly competition. The lowest error rate walks away with a prize and bragging rights

Learner Objectives:
1) Develop a road map for implementation of Deep Learning solutions for your Digital Pathology workflow;
2) Identify a deep understanding for the importance of ‘high quality, not high quantity’ of training data;
3) Describe how to structure algorithms; and
4) Define your own Deep Learning Neural Network, Live, On the Premises.


Hosted-Session: What's New in IHC and ISH? New Multiplexing Technologies Enable Innovative Experiments
Company Name:  Roche Tissue Diagnostics
Company Profile: Roche offers DISCOVERY ULTRA instrument that provides the highest level of protocol flexibility for the most challenging assays and for rapid assay development. The thirty independent slide drawers allow for brightfield/immunofluorescence capabilities.
Session Time: Monday, November 11 -- 2:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m.

Session DescriptionRecent advances in immunohistochemistry (IHC) and in situ hybridization (ISH) detection chemistries have enabled new experimental approaches.  It is now possible to detect multiple epitopes on a single slide with IHC, ISH and FISH, gene and protein IHC/ISH, mRNA or microRNA ISH.  These multiplexed approaches increase the amount of information produced in a single experiment.

Learner Objectives:
1) Describe multimer, hapten and amplification detection technologies;
2) Describe new chromogenic stains for co-localization;
3) Identify multiplexed chromogenic and fluorescent stains made possible by tyramide chemistry;
4) Describe gene and protein staining of FFPE tissues on the same slide; and
5) Identify detection of single copy RNA with RNAscope / BASEscope probes from ACD.
