BE THE FIRST TO SEE at Karolinska Institute

We cordially invite you to the opening of the GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP) at Karolinska Institute's KIGene


Sep 10, 2020

1 PM (BST) / 2 PM (CEST)
LOCATION: Karolinska Institute
Zoom Webinar

Due to social distancing guidelines, maximum 30 people will be allowed in the room. Please contact us if you would like to attend the event on-site. All researchers around Europe are welcome to attend the event online.

Understanding tissue heterogeneity is critical to answering key biological questions in translational research. NanoString’s GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP) combines the best of spatial and molecular profiling technologies. This unique combination of high-plex, high-throughput spatial profiling enables researchers to rapidly and quantitatively assess the biological implications of the heterogeneity within tissue samples.

KIGene is a well-established node at Karolinska Institute with more than twenty-five years experiences of running a core facility. The facility offers genetic analyses, covering DNA sequencing, gene expression and genotyping, as well as epigenetic analysis mainly aiming at small to medium size projects. KIGene is currently introducing the GeoMX® DSP platform from enabling Digital Spatial Profiling (DSP) of RNA and proteins. 

GeoMx® DSP combined with the ACD RNAscope™ in situ hybridization technology offers a powerful workflow for highly multiplexed, spatially resolved gene expression analysis.

This event provides the chance to learn more about the platform as well as the capabilities at KIGene.

Join us to BE THE FIRST TO SEE GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler at KIGene.
