RNA Barcoding Service (RBS)


Helping Your Research

NanoString’s custom RNA Barcoding Service (RBS) enables you to create customized content for use in your GeoMx RNA assays for spatial detection of your genes of interest. This service designs unique probes containing photocleavable indexing oligonucleotides against your RNA target of interest for GeoMx DSP applications. Using this service, you can add your specific RNA target to your already high plex analysis.

  • Add from 5 to 10 additional targets to the GeoMx Immune Pathways Panel with nCounter readout.
  • Add from 5 to 60 additional targets to GeoMx Atlas panels with NGS readout. 
  • Custom probes are shipped in pre-pooled aliquots for ease of use.

How it Works

To create customized content for your GeoMx RNA Assays, you provide us with your list of at least five (5) targets using the submission forms below. The NanoString Bioinformatics team will work with you to design target-specific probes. Barcoded probes sufficient for profiling 192 slides will be synthesized, pooled, aliquoted and shipped to you in sixteen (16) aliquots. Each aliquot contains enough material for profiling twelve (12) slides. The barcoded probes can be added directly to the hybridization solution—along with the RNA detection probes in your GeoMx RNA Assays—for spatial RNA analysis on GeoMx DSP.
