The two new panels can be combined with one another as well as with the nCounter Vantage RNA Panels to enable more comprehensive profiling of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tumor tissue. The nCounter Vantage 3D Solid Tumor portfolio provides a deeper understanding of genotype and phenotype in various solid tumor cancers by enabling multiplexed, digital analysis of combinations of DNA, RNA, fusion genes, proteins and phospho-proteins simultaneously in a single experiment. Researchers now have the ability to extract more biological information from the limited tissue available from each sample using just two FFPE slides. Designed for flexibility, the nCounter Vantage 3D Solid Tumor portfolio provides new ways for cancer researchers to apply 3D Biology technology.

"Simultaneous measurement of DNA, RNA and proteins could change how we assess and treat cancer," said
"Identifying clinically actionable mutations that can be correlated with unique signatures and cell response is key to our biomarker discovery and signature development," said
Many experiments involve measurements of DNA, RNA, and protein to determine the biological impact and correlation of genotypic and phenotypic changes. Traditionally, the analysis of all three biomolecules typically requires three separate platforms. This traditional approach has two important limitations: inefficient use of small samples and data compatibility challenges from using multiple platforms which creates uncertainty in determining whether discrepancies are due to biological factors or errors in measurement. The nCounter Vantage 3D Solid Tumor portfolio enables the simultaneous measurement of DNA, RNA and protein, addressing previous limitations.
The new products expand the portfolio of 3D Biology panels for analyzing solid tumors and FFPE tissue. The nCounter Vantage 3D DNA (SNV) Solid Tumor Panel is designed for highly multiplexed profiling of known cancer mutations, as well as insertions and deletions (INDELs) from as little as 5 nanograms of DNA.
These new product launches demonstrate NanoString's continued commitment to expanding the boundaries of biological research through 3D Biology. At the 2016 ASHG Annual Meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia, NanoString will showcase nCounter Vantage 3D Solid Tumor capabilities at booth #512.
