QuantiGene measures RNA and DNA levels directly from cell lysates and tissue homogenates. We have also developed a novel approach to compound screening that substantially increases gene and sample throughput. Applications including compound and RNAi screening, DNA Copy Number Variation (CNV) and biomarker analysis using tissue, blood, and Formalin Fixed Paraffin Embedded (FFPE) archived samples will be discussed.

QuantiGene ViewRNA is a novel mRNA in situ hybridization solution, based on patent-pending probe set design and proprietary signal amplification methodology that offers single-copy mRNA sensitivity in single cells in a multiplex assay format. This new technology enables transcriptional profiling of individual cells within a population, and has broad applicability in research areas including biomarker validation and in vitro and in vivo RNAi delivery and knockdown.

Procarta Multiplex Protein Profiling Assays (cytokines, growth factors, transcription factors, SH-domains) enable simultaneous monitoring of inter-and intracellular protein signaling pathways. A brief discussion of this broad family of assays will also be presented.



Kind Reminder: Please take off your lab coat before coming to the seminar.
