NanoString nCounter Analysis System

What is Nanostring Technology:

The NanoString nCounter analysis system is the first and only platform that can deliver direct profiling of individual molecules in a highly multiplexed single reaction without any need for amplification. This protocol provides digital readouts of relative gene expression from hundreds of mRNA species simultaneously, whilst obviating any enzymatic reactions that may introduce bias in the results.

Benefits of using the nCounter Platform:

        Ability to measure 20 to 800+ genes in a single reaction

        Digitally detect and analyse samples in a fully automated manner

        No signal amplification or polymerase steps required

        High flexibility of sample input (including mRNA, miRNA, FFPE samples and whole cell lysate)

        High throughput with minimal hands-on time

Uses of the NanoString nCounter Analysis System:

        Gene Expression Analysis

        Single Cell Gene Expression

        miRNA Expression Analysis

        miRGE (miRNA & mRNA) Analysis

        Copy Number Variation Analysis

        incRNA Analysis

        ChIP-String Analysis

        Leukaemia Fusion Gene Analysis
