Microarrays & Multiplexing

The collaboration will leverage NanoString's nCounter Analysis System and PanCancer Immune Profiling technology in multiple prospective CITN clinical trials.

The company said it placed 22 of its XT-8 molecular analyzers during the quarter as it plans the launch of its ePlex sample-to-answer MDx system.

The Houston-based firm said that it would offer the technology as part of its service business first, followed shortly by a kit launch.

The deal covers use within the life sciences, food and beverage research, and environmental testing markets.

The company is preparing for the fourth quarter launch of its Aries sample-to-answer system and assays, as well as its NxTag Respiratory Pathogen Panel.

Changing the fat and fiber content of people's diets affects their gut microbiome, metabolome, and colon cancer risk, researchers say.

Broken links are found throughout academic publications, and some services are trying to combat such link decay.

Nick Stockton at Wired says that a pause in studying genome-editing tools should be used to find a path forward.
