Short Description

A precise molecular understanding of the heterogeneity of tissues of higher organisms is critical to answering a number of key biomedical questions.' The GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP) Station allows detailed molecular analysis of defined regions within complex, heterogeneous tissue samples at both the protein and mRNA levels in high-plex formats. The technology provides a spatial molecular picture of complex biological samples by generating total transcriptomes and profiling data for hundreds of validated protein analytes from so-called "regions of interest" of selected tissue sections. This enables researchers to study the multiple cellular and molecular interactions between, for example, cancer cells, cells of the microenvironment, and therapeutically relevant cells of the immune system with unprecedented precision. The GeoMX DSP Station thus represents a robust and flexible technology platform that enormously accelerates the path from the discovery of biomedically relevant processes to translational research questions.
