nCounter® NHP Immunology Panel

Perform comprehensive multiplex gene expression analysis in Non-human primates with 770 key immune response genes that encompass 18 immune-related signaling pathways. Panel genes and probes cover the top 3 species (Rhesus Macaque, Cynomolgus Macaque, and Green Monkey).


  • Ideal for vaccine development, transplant research, immuno-oncology, toxicology and other research areas
  • 770 genes that encompass 18 immune-related signaling pathways with isoform coverage for top four species of NHP
  • All genes were selected from the conserved human regions to achieve nearly 100% cross-reactivity in human
  • Customizable with panel-plus option – add up to 55 user-defined genes
  • nCounter workflow is simple, user-friendly, and efficient with just 15 minutes total hands-on time
