NanoString nCounter

The single cell facility now offers the NanoString nCounter for single cell and small sample studies.


What is NanoString Technology:

The NanoString nCounter analysis system is the first and only platform that can deliver direct profiling of individual molecules in a highly multiplexed single reaction. Although amplification is required for single cells, larger samples can be analysed without amplification. The protocol provides digital readouts of relative gene expression from hundreds of mRNA species simultaneously, whilst obviating any enzymatic reactions that may introduce bias in the results.

Benefits of using the nCounter Platform:

If you wish to use the NanoString system please contact the Facility Manager Dr. Neil Ashley (
