NanoString PlexSet is a new, simple, cost-effective multiplex expression assay run on the established nCounter there at UMGC. The PlexSet assay is ideally suited for analysis of high throughput, low to mid-plex research applications. Our well documented “lyse and go” protocols eliminate the need for RNA extraction, purification and amplification and currently saves Big Ag companies tens of thousands in RNA spin columns. Turn-key; custom reagents do not require upfront optimization prior to initiating a new study. Finally, the data analysis and visualization can be done with our free and easy to use nSolver software suite by your own lab in a matter of hours. Some of the applications we can address:
10 AM – 11 AM
Agriculture, animal science and CRISPR applications. Alternatives to qPCR for building large data sets in less time.
11 AM – Noon
3D Biology quantifying DNA, RNA & Protein from a single sample. Applications for CRISPR and a summary of technology seminars from AGBT, AACR and ASCO.
KeyGene and University of Minnesota have entered a strategic licensing agreement which allows the UMGC to offer KeyGene’s proprietary Sequence-Based Genotyping (SBG). SBG technology allows rapid and cost-effective discovery and scoring of genetic variation. KeyGene has established a strong proprietary position on SBG with world-wide IP protection and this collaboration fully enables investigators from industry and academia to advance their research programs through SBG.Download the full press release
