  • Application Area: Gene Expression Analysis

"This is an amazing instrument allowing testing for up to 800 targets from a single sample. It is easy to use, sensitive and a very impressive technologically. One of the applications run on nCounter system (Prosigna Breast Cancer Prognostic Gene Signature Assay) ranked #4 in Top Ten Innovations of 2013 by The Scientist. Need I say more?"

nCounter® Analysis System - One Powerful, Fully Automated System for Translational Research

The nCounter® Analysis System offers a simple, cost-effective way to profile hundreds of mRNAs, microRNAs, or DNA targets simultaneously with high sensitivity and precision. The digital detection of target molecules and high levels of multiplexing eliminate the compromise between data quality and data quantity, producing gold-standard sensitivity and reproducibility for studies of hundreds of targets. The system uses molecular “barcodes” and single molecule imaging to detect and count hundreds of unique transcripts in a single reaction. Unlike other methods, the protocol does not include any amplification steps that might introduce bias to the results.

nCounter® Analysis System Features:

  • No amplification, no RT, no bias
  • High sensitivity, precision, digital quantification
  • GMP/ISO 13485 compliant
  • Fully-automated
  • Intuitive user interface
  • 15-minutes hands-on time
  • Multiplex up to 800 targets in a single reaction
  • Analyze FFPE, lysates, total RNA
  • Less bench-time, faster time to study completion
