NanoString Technologies this week launched an application for single-cell gene-expression profiling.

The new application enables digital measurement of the expression of up to 800 unique transcripts and the firm claims its approach offers "superior performance" to standard single-cell microfluidic qPCR protocols.

NanoString also claims its single-tube multiplexed assay eliminates sample splitting and "frees researchers from the constraints of fixed-format consumables employed by existing technologies, allowing them to assay genes based on the biology."
