Description: Quantify and visualize gene expression in cells, tissue lysates and paraffin-embedded tissues or fixed cells using the power of branched DNA technology, providing signal amplification at the core of the QuantiGene assay portfolio.

Detection of up to 80 targets within the same sample on a Luminex platform, direct from lysate, provides a simplified means to screen relevant RNA transcript(s) and quantify RNA presence within particular cell populations.

Then further study heterogeneous population trends at single cell resolution with advanced flow cytometry and microscopy. Simultaneously detect RNA and protein in millions of single cells with the PrimeFlow RNA Assay, for unparalleled multi-parameter cellular analysis.

And visualize single-copy RNA transcripts within adherent and suspended single cells or single cells in tissue sections using ViewRNA In Situ Hybridization (ISH) Cell and Tissue Assays, for molecular detection within morphologic al context.

Combine this powerful workflow to enable new biologic insights that have never before been possible.
