nCounter Analysis System from Nanostring Technologies
The nCounter Analysis System offers researchers the ability to easily profile hundreds of mRNAs, miRNAs, or DNA targets in a single tube. All reaction steps are performed in a single tube and processed on the fully automated system. NanoString Technologies offers several predefined gene sets for human and mouse research topics including cancer, inflammation and immunology or you can define your genes, miRNAs or DNA regions of interest to create a customized CodeSet for your research.
If you are interested in more information on how your research may benefit from the nCounter Analysis System, please complete the attached interest survey and return it to the COHR by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or in person (BSB 129).
The nCounter Analysis System is operational and available to researchers. To schedule training on operation of the system, please contact Johannes Aartun. Once personnel are trained, they will be able to schedule time on the system to conduct their own analyses.
**PROMOTIONAL OFFER DETAILS**
Custom Panel Design: We will be ordering two custom panels from NanoString Technologies containing genes submitted by local researchers. Each faulcty member will be allowed to request up to 20 genes from the species(s) of your choice to include in the custom panels. To request genes to be included in these custom panels, please download and complete the attached Excel spreadsheet. E-mail your completed spreadsheet to email@example.com by November 15th, 2013 to have your selections included in the custom panels.
Free NanoString Trials: In January 2014, we will begin accepting up to six (6) RNA samples (100 ng total RNA) from each faculty member for processing and analysis on the system. Submitted samples will be run at no charge using the custom panels defined from the submitted gene requests and will be run on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional information will be available in December 2013.
Training: We will be offering free training on operation of the nCounter Analysis System in January 2014 to a limited number of researchers and staff. If you are interested in receiving training, please contact Johannes Aartun to obtain information regarding available times.
