1 Hybridize → 2 Purify → 3 Count
Scientists now have the power to look at more genes, across more samples, and do it faster and more cost-effectively.
Simplified, User-friendly and Efficient
Hybridization NanoString’s Technology employs two ~50 base probes per mRNA that hybridize in solution. The Reporter Probe carries the signal; the Capture Probe allows the complex to be immobilized for data collection.
Purify and Immobilize After hybridization, the excess probes are removed and the probe/target complexes aligned and immobilized in the nCounter Cartridge.
Count Sample Cartridges are placed in the Digital Analyzer for data collection. Color codes on the surface of the cartridge are counted and tabulated for each target molecule.
