GeoMx® Immune Pathways Panel
Helping Your Research
Targeted Content for Cancer Biology
The GeoMx Immune Pathways Panel is designed for targeted profiling of the tumor, tumor microenvironment, and tumor immune status.
Profile up to 96 RNA targets with spatial resolution from a single tissue section using the GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP).
How it Works
The Immune Pathways panel contains 84 targets plus controls designed for broad coverage of the tumor and tumor microenvironment. GeoMx RNA assays contain in situ hybridization (ISH) probes conjugated to unique DNA indexing-oligonucleotides via a UV-photocleavable linker. After region of interest (ROI) selection on GeoMx DSP and UV cleavage of the oligonucleotides, each DNA oligonucleotide is recognized by a unique Reporter probe that contains a fluorescent barcode. Reporter probes are imaged and counted by the nCounter® Analysis System to provide a direct, digital readout of spatially resolved RNA expression.

Curated Content for Immuno-Oncology
The GeoMx Immune Pathways panel is designed to profile key aspects of the tumor and tumor microenvironment biology.
- Profile the global immune response
- Assess microenvironment immune activity
- Quantify tumor reactivity
- Measure the 18-gene Tumor Inflammation Signature known to be associated with response to PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor pathway blockade
Accompanying Morphology Marker Kits are available for tissue visualization and ROI selection.
Spatially resolved transcriptomics and its applications in cancer
Spatially resolved transcriptomics (SRT) offers the promise of understanding cells and their modes of dysfunction in the context of intact tissues. Technologies for SRT have advanced rapidly with a large number being published in recent years.
Next Generation Imaging Techniques to Define Immune Topographies in Solid Tumors
In recent years, cancer immunotherapy experienced remarkable developments and it is nowadays considered a promising therapeutic frontier against many types of cancer, especially hematological malignancies. However, in most types of solid tumors, immunotherapy efficacy is modest, partly because of the limited accessibility of lymphocytes to the tumor core.
Opposing immune and genetic mechanisms shape oncogenic programs in synovial sarcoma
Synovial sarcoma (SyS) is an aggressive neoplasm driven by the SS18-SSX fusion, and is characterized by low T cell infiltration. Here, we studied the cancer-immune interplay in SyS using an integrative approach that combines single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq), spatial profiling and genetic and pharmacological perturbations.
