Spatial Biology 101: Intro to GeoMx® DSP

  • 8:00 am (PDT)
Speakers: Kyla Teplitz, NanoString, and Ana Sanchez, Illumina

Join us for a webinar co-sponsored with Illumina to learn everything you wanted to know about spatial biology but were too afraid to ask!  Spatial biology is all the rage right now but WHAT exactly is it?  How can you do a spatial biology experiment?  How is it different from multiplex immunofluorescence staining?  How do you design your experiment?  Learn the answers to these questions and more as we dive into the technology that kickstarted the spatial biology revolution: the GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler.  Get an overview of the GeoMx DSP system, how the instrument works, what you can do with it, what kinds of assays are available, and how you can analyze your data.  Plus, get a sneak peek of the single cell spatial imaging platform the CosMx™ Spatial Molecular Imager and how GeoMx and CosMx complement each other.
