The bladder and prostate, together forming the lower urinary tract, contain a diverse collection of epithelial and stromal cell types. Spatial localization and validation of resolved cell clusters is key to making biological sense of single cell RNA-sequencing data, especially when trying to clarify the roles of novel epithelial and stromal cell types. 

In this webinar brought to you by ACD – a BioTechne brand and NanoString, Anushka Dikshit, Kit Fuhrman, and Diya Joseph will talk about integrating the capabilities of RNAscope in situ hybridization (ISH) and the GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler for highly sensitive spatial transcriptomics.

Topics to be covered

  • Using ISH probes for single cell detection of gene expression
  • Facilitating highly sensitive spatial transcriptomics with the GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler
  • How these technologies can detect transcriptomic changes in atrophied glands from prostate hyperplasia patients after 5-alpha reductase inhibitor treatment
