November Pharma and CRO Spatial Summit

Summit, Virtual Seminar


*A Virtual Event

Advancing Standard Tissue Analysis Practices

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to hear the first rollout of the NanoString GeoMx® DSP Best Practices Guidance as a cross-industry Pharma and CRO collaboration initiative.

The last NanoString Pharma and CRO Spatial summit focused on scaling GeoMx® workflows for large studies in biopharma. We will continue the next Summit on this topic and will hear from Contract Research Organizations (CROs), and their analytical verification approaches to support drug discovery and development studies.

If you are a current GeoMx® DSP user or are interested in learning about the execution of spatial biology studies, join us to learn more about:

  • Best practices for implementation of biopharma studies using GeoMx
  • Considerations for morphology marker and ROI selection strategies
  • Biopharma applications
  • Analytical verification studies
