Diagnostic Applications of the RNAscope® RNA ISH Technology

RNAscope® ISH Technology from Advanced Cell Diagnostics is a novel multiplex nucleic acid in situ hybridization platform. ACD caters over 26,000+ catalog RNA probes, designed and ready to use for most research areas and applications. RNAscope in situ hybridization technology with its proprietary double Z probe design and reagents enable reliable detection of RNA biomarkers at a single molecule sensitivity and high sensitivity within morphological context for FFPE tissues. With 40+ issued and pending patents, over 2,800 publications and customers in many diagnostic, pharma and academic fields, RNAscope® technology is primed for adoption by the clinical and companion diagnostic community. With successful partnership with Leica Biosystems the RNAscope® ISH Technology has been optimized for diagnostic and clinical use. This webinar will focus on the key Dx applications of RNAscope technology in Anatomical Pathology.

This webinar will cover:
  • RNAscope technology
  • Overview and background
  • Utility of RNAscope technology in anatomic pathology
  • Specific Dx applications of RNAscope technology (Albumin, IgK/L, HPV)
