Spring Spatial Transcriptomics or Proteomics Grant: Michigan State & Henry Ford

Masthead

APPLY NOW to spatially profile high plex RNA or proteins in user-defined regions of tissue using the GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler! The grant is open to Michigan State University and Henry Ford Health System Researchers.

Three applications will be selected as winners, the winners may choose human or mouse reagents.

1st Place Winner: Receive your choice of 4 slides worth of GeoMx Whole Transcriptome Atlas OR one Core + three Modules of GeoMx Protein reagents free of charge.

2nd Place Winner: Receive 25% off your choice of 4 slides worth of GeoMx Whole Transcriptome Atlas OR one Core + three Modules of GeoMx Protein reagents

3rd Place Winner: Receive 15% off your choice of 4 slides worth of GeoMx Whole Transcriptome Atlas OR one Core + three Modules of GeoMx Protein reagents

Whole Transcriptome Atlas: Full Transcriptome Spatial RNA Analysis

The GeoMx Whole Transcriptome Atlas (WTA) provides an unbiased view of 18,000+ protein-coding genes. WTA unlocks new pathways to be explored by researchers and enables GeoMx RNA profiling in oncology, immunology, neuroscience, developmental biology, and other diverse fields. GeoMx Hu WTA provides robust and sensitive performance on FFPE or Fresh Frozen samples.

GeoMx Protein Assays: High-Plex Spatial Proteomics Analysis

GeoMx Protein Assays enable quantitative, spatial analysis of 100+ proteins from a single FFPE or Fresh Frozen slide, vastly expanding the number of markers you can profile from a single tissue section compared to traditional immunohistochemical methods. All assays are validated for use in multiplex so you can focus on the biology of interest without wasting time troubleshooting assay performance.
