Introduction to NanoString’s Spatial & Gene Expression Technology at UPR – Hybrid Seminar

In-Person Seminar, Virtual Seminar
University of Puerto Rico Medical Sciences Campus Main Building, 6th floor, Rm. A622

Register below to join in-person or virtually for an introduction to NanoString’s spatial solutions, CosMx™ Spatial Molecular Imager (SMI), GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP) and the gene expression technology, nCounter® Analysis System.

CosMx SMI is the first high-plex in situ analysis platform to provide spatial multiomics with formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) and fresh frozen (FF) tissue samples at cellular and subcellular resolution. The GeoMx DSP combines the best of spatial and molecular profiling technologies by generating a whole-tissue image at single-cell resolution and digital profiling data for whole transcriptome RNA and more than 150 protein analytes.

nCounter provides a simple and cost-effective solution for multiplex analysis of up to 800 RNA, DNA, or protein targets. Accelerate your research with just 15 minutes total hands-on time without amplification, cDNA conversion, or library prep and generate publication ready figures in ~24 hours.


  • 12:00 – 12:30 p.m. – nCounter Overview – Neil Skinner, Field Application Scientist
  • 12:30 – 1:00 p.m. – Lunch Break
  • 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. – Geomx & CosMx Overview – Amy R. Johnson, Ph.D., Technical Sales Specialist

Three Platforms. Unlimited Potential.

Whether you’re characterizing with standard gene expression or exploring with novel spatial biology approaches, NanoString’s platforms and integrated analytics provide robust and reproducible technologies to bring progress to your work.

Amy Johnson, PhD

District Sales Manager, NanoString Technologies

Amy Johnson is a District Sales Manager for the Mid-Atlantic region at NanoString Technologies. Prior to her current role, Amy was a Technical Sales Specialist focused on NanoString Technologies’ GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler and CosMx Spatial Molecular Imager platforms. Amy earned her PhD in nutritional biochemistry and completed her postdoctoral training in the Department of Nutrition at UNC-Chapel Hill. From fetal brain development to immunometabolism in obesity, she has used in vitro and in vivo model systems as well as human study populations to research the interplay between genetic variation in metabolic pathway enzymes and individual health.
