RNAscope®: in situ RNA

RNAscope® is a new way of visualizing RNA markers in situ, revealing molecular profile you could never see before.
Now, see and measure gene expression in every cell, all within the intricate cellular and tissue architecture of routine clinical specimens.


RNAscope® detects RNA in situ, down to single copy, a breakthrough opening up a world of new possibilities.

Although ISH/FISH-based in situ RNA detection techniques have been around for years, they are largely ineffective. They lack robustness and sensitivity to reliably detect the expression of most human genes. Microarray and PCR provide useful molecular profiles of diseases, but clinically relevant information regarding cellular and tissue context, as well as spatial variation of the expression patterns, is lost in the process.

RNAscope® provides the first opportunity to profile single cell gene expression in situ, unlocking the full potential of RNA biomarkers. The targeted molecular signature of every cell in a sample is revealed and measured precisely, all within the intricate cellular and tissue architecture of clinical specimens.

RNAscope® is the only technology that has the sensitivity to detect every gene in the human transcriptome in situ, and to simultaneously quantify multiple mRNA transcripts at a single cell level. This represents a game-changing breakthrough previously unattainable by any other approach.
