GeoMx® Immune Pathways Panel
Helping Your Research
Targeted Content for Cancer Biology
The GeoMx Immune Pathways Panel is designed for targeted profiling of the tumor, tumor microenvironment, and tumor immune status.
Profile up to 96 RNA targets with spatial resolution from a single tissue section using the GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP).
How it Works
The Immune Pathways panel contains 84 targets plus controls designed for broad coverage of the tumor and tumor microenvironment. GeoMx RNA assays contain in situ hybridization (ISH) probes conjugated to unique DNA indexing-oligonucleotides via a UV-photocleavable linker. After region of interest (ROI) selection on GeoMx DSP and UV cleavage of the oligonucleotides, each DNA oligonucleotide is recognized by a unique Reporter probe that contains a fluorescent barcode. Reporter probes are imaged and counted by the nCounter® Analysis System to provide a direct, digital readout of spatially resolved RNA expression.

Curated Content for Immuno-Oncology
The GeoMx Immune Pathways panel is designed to profile key aspects of the tumor and tumor microenvironment biology.
- Profile the global immune response
- Assess microenvironment immune activity
- Quantify tumor reactivity
- Measure the 18-gene Tumor Inflammation Signature known to be associated with response to PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor pathway blockade
Accompanying Morphology Marker Kits are available for tissue visualization and ROI selection.
Sympathetic axonal sprouting induces changes in macrophage populations and protects against pancreatic cancer.
Neuronal nerve processes in the tumor microenvironment were highlighted recently. However, the origin of intra-tumoral nerves remains poorly known, in part because of technical difficulties in tracing nerve fibers via conventional histological preparations.
Immunostimulatory cancer-associated fibroblast subpopulations can predict immunotherapy response in head and neck cancer.
Purpose: Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAF) have been implicated as potential mediators of checkpoint immunotherapy response. However, the extensive heterogeneity of these cells has precluded rigorous understanding of their immunoregulatory role in the tumor microenvironment.
Spatial profiling reveals association between WNT pathway activation and T-cell exclusion in acquired resistance of synovial sarcoma to NY-ESO-1 transgenic T-cell therapy.
Background: Genetically engineered T-cell immunotherapies for adoptive cell transfer (ACT) have emerged as a promising form of cancer treatment, but many of these patients develop recurrent disease. Furthermore, delineating mechanisms of resistance may be challenging since the analysis of bulk tumor profiling can be complicated by spatial heterogeneity.
