According to Dr. Issa, “Spatial genomics has the potential to make a major impact in transplantation research. Digital Spatial Profiling will allow us to collect comprehensive biological information from our precious tissue samples, including highly informative topographic data,” stated Fadi Issa, MA, BMBCh, MSc, PhD, FRCS, Principal Investigator at the
The GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler is currently in development and is expected to be commercially available in mid-2019. Today, Digital Spatial Profiling technology can be accessed through NanoString’s Technology Access Program (TAP). To date, over 40 customers have completed more than 55 TAP projects and processed over 1000 samples. The results from these studies highlight the performance of DSP in at least ten abstracts presented at major scientific meetings and several publications in press.
