NanoString and Applied Precision to Co-Develop Gene-Expression Imager

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – NanoString Technologies and Applied Precision plan to co-develop a high-speed fluorescent imager for NanoString’s gene expression system, NanoString said Tuesday.
 
Under the agreement, Applied Precision’s base instrument will be used to help create an imager that will be incorporated into NanoString’s nCounter System, which quantifies individual mRNAs from samples, NanoString said.
 
NanoString said the imager, which also will be coupled with a fluid-handling instrument, will offer gene-expression functioning with “less than 30 minutes of hands-on time per run.”
