10x Genomics begins shipment of Visium Spatial Gene Expression Solution
10x Genomics announced it has begun shipping its Visium Spatial Gene Expression Solution. The Visium Spatial Gene Expression Solution is the first new product to result from 10x Genomics' acquisition of Sweden's Spatial Transcriptomics, a pioneer in the emerging field of spatial genomics. This solution builds on the foundation of Spatial Transcriptomics' earlier product offering, providing researchers with a comprehensive map of where gene activity is occurring in a tissue specimen.The Visium Spatial Gene Expression Solution is the first of multiple assays planned for the company's new Visium platform. It has already seen strong demand from customers, including a significant number of pre-orders from first-time 10x Genomics customers, as well as from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. Institutions like the New York Genome Center, Stanford University Genomics Facility and the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine are among the first customers to receive the product starting today.
