An example of quantitative image analysis of lymphoid populations in FFPE tissue sections is given at this link.
With this method, multiple cell types can be distinguished and quantified. As an example see at this link how five different lymphoid cell populations may be quantified by using a simple double IF on routinely fixed, embedded tissue.
A routine tonsil tissue is stained in triple IF (T cells, B cells and nuclei) and each individual lymphocyte is identified by phenotype and antigen density.
