nCounter® NHP Immunology Panel


Helping Your Research

Non-Human Primate (NHP) research is critical to provide insight into the functionality of drugs and vaccines in development. Studies with NHPs are costly and produce a plethora of samples: extracting the maximal biological information out of a given sample in a cost-effective and robust manner becomes key.  NanoString’s nCounter barcoding technology provides an ideal solution; you can directly quantify hundreds of transcripts from multiple sample types with minimal hands-on time, and the data is very reproducible.

How It Works

The nCounter NHP Immunology Panel runs on the nCounter® Analysis System and utilizes the easy to use nSolver™ Analysis Software or the cloud-based ROSALIND by OnRamp Bio for doing differential gene expression studies. The NHP Immunology Panel includes 770 key immune response genes that encompass 18 immune-related signaling pathways. Panel genes and probes cover the top 3 NHP species (Rhesus Macaque, Cynomolgus Macaque, and Green Monkey).



Ideal for vaccine development, transplant research, immuno-oncology, toxicology and other research areas


Isoform coverage for the top four species of NHP


All genes are selected from conserved human regions to achieve nearly 100% cross-reactivity in human


Customizable with the 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

Transcriptomic Analysis Reveals Host miRNAs Correlated with Immune Gene Dysregulation during Fatal Disease Progression in the Ebola Virus Cynomolgus Macaque Disease Model.

Ebola virus is a continuing threat to human populations, causing a virulent hemorrhagic fever disease characterized by dysregulation of both the innate and adaptive host immune responses. Severe cases are distinguished by an early, elevated pro-inflammatory response followed by a pronounced lymphopenia with B and T cells unable to mount an effective anti-viral response.

Hyaluronidase Impairs Neutrophil Function and Promotes Group B Streptococcus Invasion and Preterm Labor in Nonhuman Primates

Invasive bacterial infections during pregnancy are a major risk factor for preterm birth, stillbirth, and fetal injury. Group B streptococci (GBS) are Gram-positive bacteria that asymptomatically colonize the lower genital tract but infect the amniotic fluid and induce preterm birth or stillbirth.
