Molecules that Count


NanoString’s patented molecular barcodes provide a true digital detection technology capable of highly multiplexed analysis*.


1. Hybridize

2. Purify & Immobilize

3. Count

*The DNA SNV assay and samples run with the Low RNA Input Kit (enables analysis from 1 ng of RNA, 10 ng from FFPE) require amplification prior to sample processing and data collection.
