NanoString’s GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler Highlighted as a Versatile Platform for High Plex Spatial Analysis of RNA and Protein
Spatial context in biological research has been important since the introduction of microscopy, but researchers have only been able to study a few analytes at a time due to the optical limits of fluorescence imaging. With the advent of new high-plex spatial tools, researchers can characterize the cells present in tissue, as well as understanding how these cells interact. Innovations such as optical bar codes attached to oligonucleotides provide what is essentially an unlimited color spectrum to identify thousands of analytes in parallel.
"High-plex spatial analysis of normal and diseased tissues is the next frontier in functional genomics and in the development of new diagnostics. Precision medicine will be a direct beneficiary," said
“The GeoMx platform has opened new dimensions for our understanding of how patients respond to CAR T-cell therapy, allowing us to better understand factors that may contribute to improving their efficacy and durability,” stated
“Over the last sixteen years Nature’s Method of the Year has highlighted technologies that subsequently revolutionized life science research,” said
“NanoString entered the spatial biology market in 2016 with the development of our GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler that enabled spatial profiling of both RNA and protein, even in challenging FFPE samples,” said
