Spatial Biology

Spatial biology integrates traditional biological sciences with advanced spatial analysis techniques, representing a paradigm shift in the way we study and understand how molecules are distributed within cells and how cells are arranged within tissues.
Our nanoString GeoMx and CosMx are both cutting-edge spatial biology technologies that allow researchers to analyze up to whole transcriptome and/or protein expression within FF and FFPE tissue samples while preserving their spatial organization.

We offer

Flexible services

For the GeoMx and CosMx platforms we offer full service assignments. The cryostat and microscope are offered on a “hands-on” basis, i.e., the experienced user receives a short introduction by our personnel regarding methodology and operation of the instruments, then reserves a date and time for the use of the instruments.
