For 14 years, NanoString has supported translational research with instruments and assays to study archival formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue.

Even though FFPE tissue blocks have been the gold standard for clinical sample preservation for decades, many research technologies struggle to generate meaningful and reproducible data from them due to the high levels of degradation.

NanoString’s nCounter technology has exceled with FFPE samples for over a decade. nCounter has over 4,000 peer reviewed publications and a number of clinical research signatures (PAM50, TIS, LST) all optimized using FFPE samples.  

With this expertise, the GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler was developed to enable spatial profiling of RNA and protein targets on a variety of sample types, including FFPE tissue. Our unparalleled experience with FFPE has led to more than 70 peer-reviewed spatial biology studies using this difficult clinical sample type.
