Glial Profiling

Human and Mouse

Comprehensively study the role of astrocytes, microglia and oligodendrocytes in healthy and diseased samples with the Glial Profiling panel. The 770 genes on this panel cover glial cell biology that is involved in both homeostasis and disease. Study key pathways such as Cell Stress & Damage Response, Glial Regulation, Inflammation & Peripheral Immune Invasion, Glial Homeostasis & Activation and Neurotransmission. This panel is a powerful tool in the search for gene expression changes in a variety of neuroscience applications.



Profile 770 genes across over 50 pathways involved in glial cell biology


Quantify the abundance of 5 Central Nervous System cell types and 14 peripheral immune cells in a single sample


Study the function and interaction of glial cells with other genes involved in key pathways of neuroimmunology

Details & Data

Neurodegeneration, Neuroinflammation and Traumatic Brain Injury

There is a complex interplay between glial cells, peripheral immune cells and neurons associated with neurodegenerative & neuroinflammatory disorders and neurotrauma such as stroke, spinal cord injury or TBI. The nCounter Glial Profiling Panel enables rapid and comprehensive analysis of astrocytes, microglia and oligodendrocytes to assess the impact of these indications on brain tissue.
