Vizgen Merscope

Vizgen has announced its Merscope platform for in situ spatial analysis.

The platform is based on multiplexed error-robust fluorescence in situ hybridization (MERFISH) technology developed at Harvard University. It uses combinatorial and error-robust barcoding with sequential imaging to provide nanometer-scale resolution for hundreds of genes.

The automated instrument is accompanied by validated and custom gene panels, reagents and consumables, and data visualization software.
