This digital detection system is capable of analysing up to 800 genes within a single sample. It is ideal for pathway-based biological research that looks at interactions between specific genes and validates complex networks.
nanoString nCounter analysis provides an accurate, highly-sensitive alternative to quantitative PCR (an approach commonly used to validate next generation sequencing data).
The robust nature of the amplification-free chemistry means researchers can measure subtle changes from small and degraded samples, such as clinical tissue biopsies.
Applications for the nanoString nCounter analysis system include:
