Helping Your Research

Gene expression profiling can be challenging because reproducibility and data analysis can be extremely demanding. The nCounter PanCancer Pathways Panel offers fast and high-throughput multiplex gene expression analysis solution for human or mouse genes. Each panel comes with 770 genes from 13 cancer-associated canonical pathways to support the understanding of basic cancer biology:

  • Measure treatment effects on pathways 
  • Score pathway deregulation with end-to-end analysis 
  • Generate follow-up research hypothesis using pathway visualizations 
  • Rapidly and easily screen samples for biomarker discovery or drug mechanism of action studies

Inspired by systems biology approaches to cancer research, NanoString’s 360 Series Panel Collection gives you a 360° view of gene expression by combining carefully-curated content involved in the biology of the tumor, microenvironment, and the immune response into a single holistic assay. Each panel contains the 18-gene Tumor Inflammation Signature (TIS) that measures a peripherally-suppressed, adaptive immune response and has been shown to correlate with response to checkpoint inhibitors.

How It Works

The nCounter PanCancer Pathways Panel come with simple workflow of less than 15 minutes hands-on time and streamlined analysis for data in under 24 hours.

*All nCounter Panel products are provided as a CodeSet product sold in increments of 12 reactions. Master Kits (for MAX or FLEX systems) or SPRINT Reagents and Cartridges (for SPRINT) are also required and sold separately.

Spatial transcriptomics and proteomics technologies for deconvoluting the tumor microenvironment.

The tumor microenvironment (TME) harbors heterogeneous contents and plays critical roles in tumorigenesis, metastasis, and drug resistance. Therefore, the deconvolution of the TME becomes increasingly essential to every aspect of cancer research and treatment.

Hedgehog transcriptional effector GLI mediates mTOR-Induced PD-L1 expression in gastric cancer organoids.

Tumors evade immune surveillance by expressing Programmed Death-Ligand 1 (PD-L1), subsequently inhibiting CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocyte function. Response of gastric cancer to immunotherapy is relatively low.

Models that combine transcriptomic with spatial protein information exceed the predictive value for either single modality.

Immunotherapy has reshaped the field of cancer therapeutics but the population that benefits are small in many tumor types, warranting a companion diagnostic test. While immunohistochemistry (IHC) for programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) or mismatch repair (MMR) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for microsatellite instability (MSI) are the only approved companion diagnostics others are under consideration.
