Amsterdam University Medical Center | GeoMx®  Grand Opening

Grand Opening
AUMC, L01-216 Meibergdreef 9, 1105 AZ Amsterdam Room CZ-2
The Cellular Imaging central core facility at the Amsterdam UMC and NanoString are proud to invite you to this Grand Opening event to celebrate the arrival of the GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler at the Amsterdam UMC!

Join and discover how Spatial Biology can leverage your research programs and help reveal secrets in your biological samples.

The GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler ignited the spatial biology revolution and is the leading spatial profiling technology offering high sensitivity, spatial measurement of the whole transcriptome and targeted RNAs and proteins with an unparalleled level of precision.

Quantify 100’s-10,000’s of targets on a single fresh, frozen, or formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue section in a nondestructive manner.

From discovery to translational research, the GeoMx DSP is the most flexible and robust spatial biology solution designed to conform to every field of research and allows tissue atlasing, biomarker discovery & validation and pathway analysis.
