nCounter® PlexSet™ Reagents

Simple, cost-effective multiplex gene expression analysis for high throughput research applications.

  • Multiplex up to 24 custom probes across 96 samples to generate 2,304 data points per run with only 30 minutes of hands-on time
  • “Lyse-and-go” protocol for cells eliminates the need for RNA purification and amplification
  • Proven nCounter Digital Gene Expression technology provides excellent precision and reproducibility across a wide dynamic range
  • Turn-key; custom reagents do not require upfront optimization prior to initiating a new study
  • Save resources with an efficient workflow that does not require cDNA conversions*, replicates, and prior probe optimizations

*Needed if working with single cells

Simple "lyse-and-go" protocol for cell samples

The technology offers a simple workflow to lyse the cells with nCounter Buffer LH and to directly use them as samples in the experiment to attain highly specific and sensitive gene expression analysis using nSolver software. Highly optimized “Lyse and Go” protocol helps researchers save time and resources. Above we demonstrate data from the highly multiplexed PlexSet technology shows high concordance between lysed cells and purified RNA.
