San Diego Spatial Biology Roadshow 2023

In-Person Seminar
Green Acre Campus Point, 10300 Campus Point DrLink

NanoString is heading to the Green Acre! 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) and network with spatial biology experts in San Diego.

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 ProfilerCosMx™ Spatial Molecular Imager, and AtoMx™ Spatial Informatics Platform. Be one of the first to experience the live AtoMx software demo.

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