The nervous system exhibits high degree of structural and functional heterogeneity. With its signal amplification and simultaneous background noise suppression the RNAscope™ technology advances transcriptomic analyses by enabling highly sensitive and specific spatial mapping of gene expression in tissues of the nervous system at the single cell level.

Furthermore, the multiplexing capabilities of the RNAscope assays, with the power to spatially map up to 12 targets simultaneously, enables thorough characterization of cell populations within the nervous system.

Learn how experts in the field of Neuroscience have utilized the RNAscope and BaseScope assays to address pertinent questions in their research.
