ACD Symposium Series : Le Meridien, Cambridge MA

The RNA Revolution

Elevate your research using gene expression analysis combined with spatial resolution


RNAscope™ technology is a routinely used method for tissue-based gene expression analysis in biopharma target validation, disease biology research and biomarker development. With the capacity to provide single-cell and single-RNA molecule gene expression analysis in the context of complex tissue microenvironments, RNAscope ISH assay is an essential tool to complement and/or validate data from technologies like ISH, qPCR or NGS. 

Our recent advances with the BaseScope™ assay, now enables detection of a wider range of molecules, including:

  • isoform-specific splicing junctions
  • point mutations, SNP and tissue-based CRISPR edits
  • single-copy viral RNA and DNA genome detection
  • AAV and Lentiviral vector, viral UTR and codon-optimized transcripts.

This symposium will feature successful RNA ISH applications in drug discovery research. Presenters will share how their work has been impacted by gene expression analysis with spatial resolution.

We invite you to join us and scientists from different Pharmas, Biotechs and research groups who are applying molecular methods in elevating their research with new RNA analysis technologies.
