Implementation of Fully Automated BOND RX Protocol for NanoString’s GeoMx Assay

  • 8:00 am (PDT)


NanoString’s GeoMx DSP allows for the characterization of spatial distribution and abundance of proteins and mRNAs with morphological context. This extends the ability for enhanced translational research in many areas, including immunology, oncology, and neuropathology with downstream analysis of analyte abundance by either nCounter or Next Generation Sequencing. The initial workflow with a semi-automated run on the BOND RX fully automated research stainer from Leica Biosystems was resource limiting due to heavy bench time for the RNA analysis. However, the development of a fully automated run on the BOND RX fully automated research stainer from Leica Biosystems for the RNA workflow allows a 4-fold increase in sample processing. This presentation will demonstrate the effectiveness of the new protocol and data generated by the two protocols compared across HNSCC samples.
