Current State-of-the-Art in Tissue-base RNA Analysis with RNAscope® Technology

Advanced Cell Diagnostics’ RNAscope® platform is fast becoming a routinely used method for gene expression analysis. ACD has nearly 9000 RNA-specific target probes and over 500 publications using this method. RNAscope® is enabling faster and more rigorous biomarker analysis; it is a robust and ultra-sensitive RNA in situ hybridization method providing single-cell and single-molecule RNA detection in the morphological context of disease micro-environments. Using our proprietary oligo probe design and amplification methods, RNAscope® technology's detection limit is significantly lower than IHC and has been clinically validated; it has enabled patient selection in clinical trials and ACD has partners for CDx development. The technology and illustrations of published application will be presented.
