nCounter® Elements TagSets

Elements is currently registered with the USFDA as a General Purpose Reagent (GPR). nCounter Elements reagents enable analysis with color-coded molecular barcodes that facilitate detection and quantitation of RNA and DNA targets by hybridizing to target-specific oligonucleotide probes that can be purchased from an oligo supplier. They are ideal for a range of applications requiring efficient, quantitation of tens to hundreds of target molecules across a sample set. This unique chemistry generates high-quality results from challenging sample types, such as FFPE tissue or crude cell lysates.
