NanoString Launches Technology Access Program for the Spatial Molecular Imager (SMI) Platform and Showcases Spatially Resolved Transcriptomic Research at 2021 Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) Conference

Data in Twenty-One Poster and Oral Presentations Highlight use of GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler and the Spatial Molecular Imager Platform for Discovery and Translational Applications

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)– NanoString Technologies Inc.. (NASDAQ: NSTG), a leading provider of life science tools for discovery and translational research, today announced the launch of a Technology Access Program (TAP) for the Spatial Molecular Imager. Under the program, a customer can submit tissue samples to NanoString to be analyzed using the 1000-plex RNA panel and receive a complete data package. Researchers interested in participating in NanoString’s Technology Access Program should contact the company at

During the 2021 AGBT conference, 21 posters and oral presentations will highlight the latest scientific advances using the GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP) and Whole Transcriptome Atlas (WTA) in addition to data on the first customer samples from SMI early access studies.

The SMI platform provides highly sensitive, high-resolution imaging of hundreds to thousands of RNAs or proteins directly from single cells within morphologically intact tissue samples. This new platform complements the high-plex, high throughput GeoMx DSP and the recently launched GeoMx Whole Transcriptome Atlas.
