The Institute for Neurosciences CSIC-UMH and Izasa Scientific join forces and bring MERFISH spatial transcriptomics to Spain

14 de December de 2023

 It is the first device that offers this technology in the Iberian Peninsula and is located at the Institute for Neurosciences.

The alliance between the Institute for Neurosciences (IN), a joint center of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and the Miguel Hernández University (UMH) of Elche, and the distributor Izasa Scientific has made possible the arrival of MERSCOPE® to Spain. MERSCOPE, which is already in the IN facilities and will be available starting next January, is a platform developed by Vizgen, a spin-out of Harvard University (USA), that allows the detection of tens to thousands of RNA molecules directly in tissue and with subcellular resolution.
