The NanoString nCounter MAX profiler is made up of the fully automated MAX Prep Station and the MAX Digital Analyzer. The nCounter uses a molecular barcode technology that allows researchers to digitally examine multiple pathways in a single tube in an extraction-free workflow. NanoString assays eliminate cDNA synthesis, amplification , and library prep which reduces technical variation. Analysis software is free for all users and can be installed on any computer.
Please contact our group for a consult before your project in order to make sure your needs are understood and met.
All assays can be used for up to 12 samples in a single experiment.
