To further develop and validate the emerging expression microdissection (XMD) technique to generally improve several performance parameters for the approach. In brief, XMD is a method for quickly extracting cells of interest from fixed slides by adhering them to a clear film, which is much easier and faster than laser capture microdissection. They research team will demonstrate the potential for this by specifically introducing XMD into clinical workflows
