Houston Spatial Biology Roadshow 2023

In-Person Seminar
Houston Marriott Medical Center/Museum District, Salons A-D, 6580 Fannin St, Houston, TX, 77030

NanoString is heading to Houston! We invite you to an afternoon filled with presentations and discussions all about the future of spatial biology. Join us at our free event (with free parking) at Houston Marriott Medical Center/Museum District and network with spatial biology experts.

Have you heard about our planned expansion in RNA plex from 1,000 to 6,000—the highest plex of any spatial imager!

Hear from spatial biology leaders that will discuss the future of spatial omics applications and NanoString’s latest innovations. Guest speakers will share their results and discoveries. Spatial leaders will discuss the future of GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler, CosMx™ Spatial Molecular Imager, and AtoMx™ Spatial Informatics Platform.

After the presentations, we will have a reception with refreshments and food to continue the discussion.
