Revealing Hidden Biology with Spatial Multiomics Using the GeoMx DSP and CosMx SMI

At this hybrid event, we will introduce NanoString’s spatial multiomic systems, the GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP) and CosMx Spatial Molecular Imager (SMI), followed by an exciting presentation by Amit Gaggar, MD, PhD.

The GeoMx DSP allows you to measure tens to thousands of RNA or protein analytes in cell types or morphological structures to understand cellular heterogeneity.

The CosMx SMI is the first high-plex spatial in situ instrument to provide rapid quantification and visualization of up to 1,000 RNA and 100 protein analytes in a single-cell and subcellular analysis. This system gives deep insights for cell atlasing, tissue phenotyping, cell-to-cell interactions, cellular processes, and biomarker discovery.

Registration is now closed for this event.
