SEATTLE & SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NanoString Technologies, Inc., a privately held provider of life science tools for translational research and developer of molecular diagnostics, today announced the launch of a Single Cell Gene Expression application that provides researchers with a flexible and highly sensitive approach to discovering differences in cell-to-cell gene expression profiles. The new Single Cell Gene Expression application allows a digital measurement of the expression of up to 800 unique transcripts, and offers superior performance to standard single cell microfluidic qPCR protocols. The single tube, highly multiplexed assay eliminates sample splitting and frees researchers from the constraints of fixed-format consumables employed by existing technologies, allowing them to assay genes based on the biology.
