We developed a robust multiplex fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) technique in archival formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) human tissue sections while preserving the microanatomical context. This identifies single-cell gene expression patterns by probing multiple, unique nascent RNA transcripts and yields predictive quantitative gene expression signatures.
