RNAscope™ Technology Seminar - London, UK


Monday April 24, 2017

12 - 1 pm

Seminar Room, 28th Floor

Tower Wing, Guy's Campus, Great Maze Pond

Centre for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine and Institute for Liver Studies
King's College London, UK

The RNAscope™ in situ hybridization assay is a revolutionary ISH assay—a technology is being routinely used for tissue-based gene expression analysis for stem cell research applications. In particular, the rapid probe design coupled with single-molecule detection enables cell-specific localization of RNA transcripts quickly and precisely for markers of stem cell populations. Researchers using RNAscope technology have published a total of 110 stem cell publications;  29 of which focused on LGR5 and 49 on WNT genes. 


Faraia Shah, PhD will present an overview of the RNAscope Assay and the newly introduced BaseScope Assay .  Additionally, she will review published data and highlight how other researchers have applied RNAscope assay to

  • Identify, characterize, and locate stem cell populations
  • Reveal markers of stem cell maintenance and regeneration
  • Identify long non-coding RNAs in stem cells
  • Detect stem cell markers when no reliable antibodies are available


Maria Paola Serra, PhD from the Rashid Lab will also present her own experiences of the assay:

Characterisation of fetal liver cell populations during development
