NanoString Activities

NanoString Workshop: Spatial Multiomics as a Service

May 7, 2023 I 1:00 – 4:50 p.m. ET
Dalton Room, 3rd Floor

Join NanoString for the second annual NanoString Spatial Biology Workshop at ABRF. Learn best practices around running GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler and CosMx Spatial Molecular Imager in the resource facility setting. Discover the latest updates in spatial biology and learn tips and tricks from your peers. Core lab personnel will discuss their expertise with tracking projects, gaining interest, sample prep, pricing and region of interest strategy. See the newly released demo of the AtoMx Spatial Informatics Platform which allows you to easily analyze, collaborate and share spatial omics data.

Guest Speakers Include:

Grant R. Kolar, MD, PhD, Director, Research Microscopy and Histology Core, Department of Pathology, Department of Ophthalmology, Department of Pharmacology and Physiology, Saint Louis University School of Medicine 

E. Michael Meyer, Research Scientist, Manager, Cytometry Facility, UPMC Hillman Cancer Center

Jessica Runyon, Director of Product Management, Gene Expression Services, Canopy Biosciences

Katelyn Becker, Core Laboratory Manager, Van Andel Institute

Lunch provided, happy hour to follow.

NanoString Spatial Biology Technology Showcase:
Spatial Multiomics from the Single Cell to Whole Transcriptome

May 8, 2023 I 8:00 – 9:00 a.m., Gardner Room

Cells do not function in isolation but are strongly influenced by their spatial location and surroundings. To build a complete picture of biology at any scale, multiomic data types are needed along with spatial context. Together, GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP) and CosMx™ Spatial Molecular Imager (SMI) address a broad range of plex and resolution from whole transcriptome, enabling broad discovery of novel biomarkers and, to 1,000 genes at the single cell level to interrogate differences in biochemical pathways. These joint applications between GeoMx DSP and CosMx SMI are now seamlessly integrated with our latest cloud-enabled platform, AtoMx™ Spatial Informatics Platform (SIP). AtoMx SIP is a cloud computing suite that will revolutionize spatial multi-omics data analysis using the cloud’s compute and storage capabilities, AtoMx delivers an integrated ecosystem enabling ease of access, visualization, collaboration, analysis, and secure data storage.

NanoString Talk: Redefining Spatial Biology with Single-Cell Imaging – CosMx Spatial Molecular Imager

CosMx Spatial Molecular Imager (SMI) is a revolutionary spatial single-cell imaging platform that enables imaging of more than 1,000 RNA and over 60 protein analytes within morphologically intact whole tissue sections. CosMx SMI empowers researchers to achieve more from a single experiment – cell atlasing, cell-cell interaction, cell co-localization, reference mapping (neighborhood analysis), signaling pathway analysis all from one single run. With a roadmap to 6,000-plex RNA and 120-plex protein analytes next year, CosMx SMI will continue to quantify gene and protein expression at single cell and subcellular resolutions at unprecedented plex levels. Explore the limitless possibilities with high plex spatial single-cell imaging and uncover the intricacies of events occurring within and around single cells.
