HTG recently introduced its quantitative Nuclease Protection Assay, an in situ testing method for gene expression in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue samples.
 

According to HTG, the assay enables researchers to quantitate RNA expression for up to 16 targets simultaneously in FFPE tissue sections without the need for extraction or target amplification. The qNP assay is designed to run on HTG’s ArrayPlate platform.
