Canopy Biosciences Gene Expression Analysis Service

Canopy Biosciences has launched a service for high-throughput gene-expression analysis. Based on the NanoString nCounter platform, the service works with a large array of sample types, including formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue. Canopy has paired this service with genome editing capabilities enabled by its recent licensing of TUNR flexible gene editing technology from Washington University in St. Louis and Johns Hopkins University. The new service features a web-based ordering tool, through which researchers can choose one of NanoString's pre-made gene panels or design their own custom panel. Each panel enables the simultaneous measurement of over 700 genes, Canopy said.
