nCounter® Consumables

nCounter Analysis Systems require the use of consumables to perform post-hybridization processing and image scanning. The reagents required are defined by the instrumentation used.

The nCounter Master Kit provides all the consumables and reagents you need to perform any NanoString assay on the nCounter MAX and nCounter FLEX Analysis Systems. With each Master Kit order, you receive the nCounter Cartridges, Prep Plates, and Prep Pack, which includes racked tips and foil piercers, 12-tube strips, strip tube caps, tube sheaths, cartridge well seals and hybridization buffer. Master Kits are available in packs of 12, 48 or 192 assays.

  • Twelve samples can by processed in a single nCounter Cartridge
  • All reagents and consumables assembled in one kit
  • No prep or dilutions required
  • Arrive ready to run

nCounter Master Kit components are shipped in separate boxes under different shipping conditions. Individual components may be purchased separately if required
