nCounter® Elements XT Reagents (For Laboratory Use)

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.

  • Amplification-free digital counting of nucleic acids (for applications such as RNA—gene expression, RNA–gene fusion detection, and DNA–copy number analysis)
  • Compatible with FFPE, crude cell lysates, blood products, fine-needle aspirates or cell lines
  • Multiplex up to 216 custom targets per sample in a single tube
