nCounter® PanCancer
Immune Profiling Panel

Helping Your Research

Perform multiplex gene expression analysis in human or mouse with 770 genes from different immune cell types, common checkpoint inhibitors, CT antigens, and genes covering both the adaptive and innate immune response. The panel measures many features of the immune response to facilitate rapid development of clinical actionable gene expression profiles in the context of cancer immunotherapy.

  • Comprehensive profiling of the immune response optimized for immuno-oncology research
  • Identify tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) for the tumor microenvironment
  • Assess mechanistic pathway activity for single or combination studies
  • Customizable with up to 55 additional user-defined genes with Panel Plus option
Pancancer immune profiling product area


The nCounter PanCancer Immune Profiling Panel is for cancer researchers that need more markers than is practical for RT-qPCR but don’t want the broad approach that next-gen sequencing (NGS) offers. The Panel is fully compatible with clinically relevant sample types such as fresh-frozen (FF) tissue, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tumor sections, isolated immune cell populations such as PBMCs, and cell lysates. The panel may be used in conjunction with nCounter Panel Plus products for additional flexibility in experimental design.

Tumoral and stromal hMENA isoforms impact tertiary lymphoid structure localization in lung cancer and predict immune checkpoint blockade response in patients with cancer

BACKGROUND: Tertiary Lymphoid Structures (TLS) correlate with positive outcomes in patients with NSCLC and the efficacy of immune checkpoint blockade (ICB) in cancer. The actin regulatory protein hMENA undergoes tissue-specific splicing, producing the epithelial hMENA(11a) linked to favorable prognosis in early NSCLC, and the mesenchymal hMENADeltav6 found in invasive cancer cells and pro-tumoral cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs).

HER2 heterogeneity and treatment response-associated profiles in HER2-positive breast cancer in the NCT02326974 clinical trial

BACKGROUND: HER2-targeting therapies have great efficacy in HER2-positive breast cancer, but resistance in part due to HER2 heterogeneity (HET) is a significant clinical challenge. We previously described that in a phase II neoadjuvant trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) and pertuzumab (T-DM1+P) clinical trial in early-stage HER2-positive breast cancer, none of the patients with HER2-HET tumors had pathologic complete response (pCR).

Clinically relevant molecular hallmarks of PFA ependymomas display intratumoral heterogeneity and correlate with tumor morphology

Posterior fossa type A (PF-EPN-A, PFA) ependymoma are aggressive tumors that mainly affect children and have a poor prognosis. Histopathology shows significant intratumoral heterogeneity, ranging from loose tissue to often sharply demarcated, extremely cell-dense tumor areas.
