NanoString Technology

Curia is an authorized partner of NanoString, a leader in direct multiplexed digital barcode technology that enables simultaneous quantification of DNA, RNA, and proteins in any combinations. Curia offers a full suite of multiplex services including:

  • Upstream study design and study execution
  • Sample preparation/extraction
  • Full cell-based/tissue-based treatment workflows from virtually any starting materials

Curia also offers a full menu of upstream bioassays to facilitate the client’s workflow from simple compound/biologic treatment of cell lines through the processing of thousands of clinical tissue samples and multiple analytic readouts for R&D and cGxP.

About the NanoString Platforms: The NanoString nCounter® platform is a complete solution for detecting and counting large sets of molecules using solution-phase hybridization, immobilization, and fluorescence scanning.

  • Multiplexes up to 800 targets (mRNA, microRNA, DNA, or proteins) in a single reaction
  • Requires no amplification or enzymatic reactions
  • High sensitivity, precision, and reproducibility
  • Utilizes small sample quantities (10 – 100 ng RNA, 300 ng gDNA)
  • Works with diverse sample types: purified RNA, cell lysates, blood, tissue, FFPE samples, and ChIP DNA
  • Fast turnaround – in as little as 3 working days
