Halo® – Image Analysis Platform
Image Analysis Platform for Quantitative Tissue Analysis
Access to the Halo platform is a service offered by the Translational Histopathology Laboratory (THL). The THL have a license to Halo which staff are welcome to use at the rates below. If you are interested in using one of our services please contact us at email@example.com.
HALO® Multiplex IHC is a digital platform for cell-based image analysis that can separate up to five stains simultaneously within any cellular compartment. It is ideal for characterising distinct immune and tumour cell populations within the tissue where multiple markers are required.
HALO is capable of automated tissue classification on brightfield and fluorescent images, using machine learning. In addition, the software can perform infiltration analysis, nearest neighbour/proximity analysis and density hotspot analysis. HALO allows automated batch analysis of whole slides and TMAs.
Quantitative measurements at single-cell resolution can be measured by our pathologist.

Halo Online Training Series
Partnered with indica labs, Oxford Cancer offered an online training series on the functionalities of HALO. Recordings of those training sessions can be found below.
We intend to create more training sessions in the future, if there is interest and demand. Please contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest and find out when the next training sessions are.
Trained users will need to book time slots on Calpendo. Users can then access HALO via remote desktop whilst connected to MSD IT Services VPN. Note that this is different to Oxford University VPN. We will provide the remote desktop IP address, username and password upon booking.
