The Genomics Core Facility provides services using the NanoString nCounter technology to study gene and protein expression. NanoString provides a unique way to quickly analyze several hundred distinct targets simultaneously using digital barcoded counting.



Advantages of NanoString assays

  • Multiplex up to 800 distinct genes

  • Directly detect RNA for accurate quantitation

  • Work with old or poor-quality samples, such as FFPE tissue

  • Work with low-abundance samples such as cfDNA from liquid biopsies

  • Can utilize pre-designed panels of 770 genes (these panels can be customized with an additional 30 genes). Explore the many panels under the areas bellow
