nCounter® Custom CodeSets

A Custom CodeSet is a multiplex assay of up to 800 user-defined targets. Our bioinformatics team has worked with customers to design CodeSets for a variety of organisms and applications, incuding: Gene Expression, Copy Number Variation (CNV), Fusion or Splice Variant detection, Ribosomal RNA, and more.

Our web-based NanoString Panel Pro selection tool allows you to explore virtual made-to-order panels for various applications. You can also contact us today to discuss designing other custom panels with our bioinformatics team.

  • CodeSets designed to your specifications
  • Include up to 800 targets of interest
  • Designs to any organism with known sequence
  • Expert bioinformatics design support
