RNA In Situ Hybridization in FFPE and Fresh Frozen Tissues—Overview

ViewRNA ISH Tissue Assay  is the most robust in situ hybridization assay that has single-molecule RNA sensitivity and multiplexing capabilities - simultaneously multiplex ANY gene pair. The assays allow for RNA localization within the cellular context - tumor micro-environment and intra-tumor heterogeneity – that can provide vital information to biomarker's clinical relevance.
