PanCancer Progression Panel
Helping Your Research
Cancer progression involves multiple processes and mechanisms that are highly interconnected. The nCounter PanCancer Progression Panel lets you perform multiplex gene expression analysis with 770 genes from each step in the cancer progression process including: angiogenesis, extracellular matrix remodeling (ECM), epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and metastasis.
- Comprehensive gene expression analysis of cancer progression
- Quantify gene expression of metastatic growth and suppressor genes
- Rapidly and easily screen samples for biomarker discovery or drug mechanism of action to support your research
- Customizable with up to 55 additional user-defined genes with Panel Plus option
- 3D-enabled for multi-analyte analysis with Vantage 3D™ Assays
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.

360 Series Product Comparison
Fully-annotated gene lists in Excel format are available for each of the 360 Panels. The table below compares the biology coverage of the 360 Panels across the tumor, microenvironment, and the immune response to that of the PanCancer Panels Collection.
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.
