The Cancer Center at Illinois is pleased to announce that its Tumor Engineering and Phenotyping (TEP) Shared Resource now has the NanoString nCounter SPRINT Profiler available to CCIL members and other campus users.
This NanoString Profiler provides panels that typically have 770 genes, yielding a complete picture of a specific area of biology. Additionally, it gives the option for a more targeted approach using custom CodeSets, if you have a specific set of genes you’d like to profile. Both options are an excellent alternative to qPCR & RNA-Seq. Furthermore, this technology allows the skipping of library prep, reverse transcription, and amplification that other platforms require, resulting in sensitive, linear, and reproducible data within 24 hrs.
During this initial phase of implementation ONLY, the TEP Shared Resource has negotiated with Nanostring to give 25% OFF any Custom CodeSet or Panel through October 31st.
For your reference, below are several common project configurations and their pricing. This technology allows a tremendous amount of flexibility regarding how many genes can be profiled in a single sample (< 800 genes), allowing TEP to custom design these analyses. TEP staff is available to work with you to design the analysis that best meets your needs.
- Panels (shelf life 1-1.5 years)
- (12 Samples x 770 Genes) PanCancer Panels – $274 per sample ($206 w/ promotion)
- (12 Samples x 255 Genes) Human Inflammation Panel – $166 per sample ($125 w/promotion)
- Custom CodeSets (shelf life 3 years)
- 48 Samples x 50 Genes – $87 per sample ($65 w/ promotion)
- 48 Samples x 100 Genes – $149 per sample ($112 w/ promotion)
- 96 Samples x 50 Genes – $70 per sample ($53 w/ promotion)
- 96 Samples x 100 Genes – $116 per sample ($87 w/ promotion)
For the first three CCIL members: TEP will run the nCounter SPRINT analysis for FREE (Note: free analysis of 1 cartridge for each of the first 3 CCIL members; plus $ 200 charge for the cartridge). The regular charge for this analysis will be $595/cartridge of 12 samples/cartridge.
If you have a gene expression project in the planning stages or ready to run, contact Hui Xu, TEP Research Coordinator.
