Join us in Vancouver, BC or virtually for a dynamic event focused on the latest breakthroughs in the field of spatial biology. Start with an insightful overview of our cutting-edge instruments detailing their workings and applications. This will set the stage for a lineup of engaging talks by renowned guest researchers.

Learn directly from researchers about their groundbreaking work using the GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler, and CosMx™ Spatial Molecular Imager. Discover the steps for executing a GeoMx DSP project via MAPcore, including tips for project design and data analysis.

Discover groundbreaking tools such as the GeoMx® IO Proteome Atlas, enabling profiling of over 570 proteins within precise tissue compartments. Also featured is the CosMx™ Human 6K Discovery Panel, offering unparalleled gene profiling of over 6,000 genes without dissociating tissue, preserving the biological context. Attend and explore an exceptional grant opportunity we’re rolling out, which will award two winners a 2-slide GeoMx WTA (human or mouse) project enabling the mapping of the whole transcriptome to user-defined tissue regions using the GeoMx DSP, entirely on us.

If you are unable to attend for the duration of the Roadshow, you may attend the session that best suits your interest.
