Spatial Profiling Lab Service Project Details
Meet with our team to discuss your project in detail and receive a statement of work.
We assist with selecting the gene panel and protein co-detection strategy most relevant for each biological question and optimize for your species and tissue type or help you choose a predefined panel.
Ship your samples to our laboratory headquartered in Cambridge, MA
We develop a sample processing and MERFISH protocol specific to custom project samples or use a standard protocol for POP studies.
Our team spatially profiles the gene and protein expression of your tissue samples with MERSCOPE. Vizgen scientists have access to the largest centralized collection of MERSCOPE instruments enabling a rapid turn-a-round of high-quality data.
You receive decoded MERFISH datasets packaged into easy-to-read tables and high-resolution images to analyze along with a final report.
“Using MERFISH technology, researchers at the Allen Institute were able to gather cellular-resolution spatial transcriptomic data that advanced us significantly closer toward our goal of creating a taxonomy of cell types and a description of their connectivity within brain circuits – laying the groundwork to one day understanding how brain circuits function.
In the hands of the research community, I believe that MERSCOPE will be a powerful tool for standardizing the way we characterize different cell types, not just in the brain, but also in the rest of the body, ultimately bringing a deeper level of understanding to all life science research .”
