Autoimmune Discovery Panel


Helping Your Research

The nCounter Autoimmune Discovery Panel is designed to enable researchers to discover links between known autoimmune disease associated germline variants and gene expression. The genes were selected in collaboration with leading autoimmune researchers and are linked to the top nine autoimmune diseases. This panel is made-to-order and you can add on up to 55 gene targets to the panel with the Panel Plus product to customize the panel to your research project.

How it Works

The Human nCounter Autoimmune Discovery Panel is a 770-gene panel that provides analysis of the links between known disease associated mutations and gene expression changes, allowing researchers to identify new gene functions and to look at gene expression in response to treatment. Highlights of the Autoimmune Discovery Panel include:


Discovery tool for disease-associated mutation gene function studies and biomarker characterization


Comprehensive content associated with nine autoimmune diseases


Gene expression profiling of immune response together with gene mutations


Made-to-order & customizable with the Panel Plus option – add up to 55 user-defined genes


Simple workflow, user-friendly, and efficient with just 15 minutes total hands-on time

Rapid Induction of Pulmonary Inflammation, Autoimmune Gene Expression, and Ectopic Lymphoid Neogenesis Following Acute Silica Exposure in Lupus-Prone Mice.

Occupational exposure to crystalline silica (cSiO2) is etiologically associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus) and other autoimmune diseases. cSiO2’s autoimmune effects in humans can be mimicked chronically in female lupus-prone NZBWF1 mice following repeated exposure to the particle.

A Novel Inflammatory Dendritic Cell That Is Abundant and Contiguous to T Cells in the Kidneys of Patients With Lupus Nephritis.

The mechanisms that promote local inflammatory injury during lupus nephritis (LN) flare are largely unknown. Understanding the key immune cells that drive intrarenal inflammation will advance our knowledge of disease pathogenesis and inform the development of new therapeutics for LN management.
