AGBT21: VizGen Unveils MERSCOPE
By: Keith Robison
More spatial profiling news coming in from AGBT — Harvard spin-out VizGen is launching in the U.S. an instrument implementing MERFISH technology. This sub-$300K instrument will initially enable panels of up to 500 genes to be profiled, with plans to expand that capacity to 1000. Users either pick from a menu of pre-designed panels or select genes using a Gene Panel Design Tool and VizGen would proceed to manufacturing the panel in around two weeks. VizGen CEO Terry Lo and Senior Director of Marketing Brittany Auclair were kind enough to give me a preview last Friday.
