Submissions now closed.

Vizgen is proud to offer a grant program which will enable the winner access to a MERSCOPE® Platform single-cell spatial analysis project leveraging the new PanCancer Pathways Predesigned Panel.

The Vizgen MERSCOPE Platform is the first and only commercial solution for MERFISH technology, enabling massively multiplexed, error-robust, single-cell in situ transcriptomic imaging. The MERSCOPE Platform solution includes reagents, the MERSCOPE instrument, and software to streamline the full process from sample to high-quality MERFISH data.

Vizgen’s MERSCOPE PanCancer Pathways Panel features a curated list of genes targeting canonical signaling pathways of cancer. It was constructed using recognized oncology databases including OncoKB, MutSig, The Cancer Genome Atlas, and Hallmarks of Cancer to ensure the inclusion of critical cancer genes. The Vizgen PanCancer Pathways Panel provides the ability to characterize tumor behavior at cellular and subcellular levels across multiple types of cancers. 

The PanCancer Pathways Panel has compatibility across breast cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, melanoma, ovarian cancer, and brain cancer.
