Interested in spatial-omics?

NanoString Technologies, a leader in spatial biology, offers an
ecosystem of innovative discovery and translational research solutions.

  • The GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler is a flexible solution combining the power of whole tissue imaging with gene expression and protein data for spatial whole transcriptomics and proteomics from one FFPE slide.
  • The CosMx™ Spatial Molecular Imager (SMI) is an FFPE-compatible, single-cell imaging platform powered by spatial multiomics enabling researchers to map single cells in their native environments.
  • The AtoMx™ Spatial Informatics Platform (SIP) is a cloud-based informatics solution with advanced analytics and global collaboration capabilities, enabling spatial biology insights anytime, anywhere.

The event is followed by Pre-bookable Project Consultations with the NanoString team. Meet the experts to discuss how to apply spatial profiling to your research projects. To request yours, contact Rachid El Morabiti at
