GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler

The Spatial Biology Solution


Helping Your Research

Understanding tissue heterogeneity is critical to answering key biological questions. The current tissue analysis paradigm requires a tradeoff between low-plex spatial analysis or high-plex bulk analysis, sacrificing valuable information and consuming precious samples. NanoString’s GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP) combines the best of spatial and molecular profiling technologies by generating digital whole transcriptomes and profiling data for 100s of validated Protein analytes from up to 12 tissue slides per day. This unique combination of high-plex and high-throughput spatial profiling enables researchers to rapidly and quantitatively assess the biological implications of the heterogeneity within tissue samples.  From discovery to translational research, the GeoMx DSP is the most flexible and robust spatial solution designed to conform to your ever-changing research needs.

How it Works

The GeoMx DSP workflow seamlessly integrates with current histology methods to get you robust and reproducible spatial omics data quickly. Stain for RNA or Protein from FFPE or fresh frozen tissue sections, precisely select which tissue compartments or cell types you want to profile based on the biology, and readout expression levels using either the nCounter Analysis System or an Illumina sequencer.

Best Practices for Spatial Profiling for Breast Cancer Research with the GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler

Breast cancer is a heterogenous disease with variability in tumor cells and in the surrounding tumor microenvironment (TME). Understanding the molecular diversity in breast cancer is critical for improving prediction of therapeutic response and prognostication.

Spatially organized multicellular immune hubs in human colorectal cancer.

Immune responses to cancer are highly variable, with mismatch repair-deficient (MMRd) tumors exhibiting more anti-tumor immunity than mismatch repair-proficient (MMRp) tumors. To understand the rules governing these varied responses, we transcriptionally profiled 371,223 cells from colorectal tumors and adjacent normal tissues of 28 MMRp and 34 MMRd individuals.

Comparison between non-pulmonary Comparison between non-pulmonary and pulmonary immune responses in a HIV decedent who succumbed to COVID-19.

We read with interest the study by Manuel et al showing that chronic immunosuppression could protect against severe COVID-19 in liver transplant patients. 1 Despite increased comorbidities, COVID-19 in liver transplant patients was not more severe than in non-transplant cohorts.
