In a world of uncertainties…
gene expression you can
Count On

The nCounter Pro Analysis System delivers highly reproducible expression data on 800+ targets with zero enzymatic steps using a simple automated workflow that requires only 15 minutes of hands-on time.


The nCounter Pro features a streamlined workflow with a limited number of steps, improving the reliability of results and reducing the amount of time spent in the lab.


The nCounter Pro supports an overall data security ecosystem thanks to advanced cybersecurity features relevant to the modern research environment.

  • Hard Drive & Data Encryption
  • Enables a 21 CFR Part 11 Environment
  • Protects User Data
  • Controlled Access
  • Easy Networking


The key to the nCounter Pro’s exceptional reproducibility and performance lies in NanoString’s patented molecular barcode chemistry.

  • No reverse transcription is needed, reducing sources of variability in your data.
  • Less variation reduces the need for technical replicates
  • Robust performance from degraded sample types such as FFPE and proven results on biofluids, fresh frozen tissue, and cell lysates
