nCounter® Elements™ TagSets

nCounter® Elements™ TagSets are designated as Research Use Only, and are not for use in diagnostic procedures. nCounter Elements TagSets 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
  • Compatible with FFPE, crude cell lysates, and cell lines
  • Multiplex up to 216 custom targets per sample in a single tube
