"Visium HD is a game-changer for spatial discovery research, and our team couldn't be more proud and excited to get this long-awaited product into the hands of our customers," said Michael Schnall-Levin, Founding Scientist and Chief Technology Officer at 10x Genomics. "This is the most requested product in our history, and I can't think of a better example of how 10x listens to our customers and takes on the hardest development challenges to have the biggest impact on scientific research. We're confident researchers will agree Visium HD was well worth the wait."


Combining the power of whole transcriptome spatial discovery with histological insights, Visium HD enables comprehensive characterization of FFPE tissue samples. Visium HD offers:

  • Whole transcriptome spatial discovery power at single cell scale: Use next-generation slide architecture, which provides transcript data in 2 x 2 µm barcoded squares without gaps, to resolve fine anatomical structures and map cell types and states at single cell-scale resolution.

  • Best-in-class sequencing-based spatial transcriptomics data: Map gene expression with precision and high confidence using a simple and robust workflow exclusively available on Visium CytAssist.

  • FFPE compatibility: Generate powerful data from human or mouse FFPE samples, including archived blocks or pre-sectioned slides, using a universal sample preparation protocol.

  • Enhanced histology: Integrate H&E or IF images with high-resolution spatial transcriptomics from the same tissue section.

  • Easy-to-use analysis and visualization tools: Seamlessly combine histological and gene expression data using updated versions of Space Ranger and Loupe Browser to enable intuitive data exploration and accelerate discovery.

The company will host a webinar to introduce Visium HD on April 2, 2024 at 12 PM E.T. Register here.
