OnRamp Bio and NanoString Announce Global Availability of ROSALIND® for nCounter Users

After a Successful Early Access Program, the ROSALIND® Analysis Platform is Now Available to all nCounter Users

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NanoString Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:NSTG), a leading provider of life science tools for discovery and translational research, and OnRamp Bioinformatics, a provider of cloud-based genomic analysis tools, today announced a key milestone in their partnership to develop new analysis tools to accelerate research on NanoString’s nCounter® Analysis System. After successful completion of an Early Access Program announced in May, the parties are expanding access to new analysis capabilities to all nCounter users. The new analysis functionality is built into ROSALIND®, OnRamp’s cloud-based analysis platform that facilitates data visualization, exploration and collaboration. NanoString will support ROSALIND as a preferred analysis solution for nCounter data and make it broadly available to users of the nCounter Analysis System.

“ROSALIND is an excellent complement to the nCounter System,” said Chad Brown, SVP of Sales and Marketing at NanoString. “nCounter enables data production faster and easier than other technologies on the market and ROSALIND enables users to extract insights from their data faster and easier. The combination of these technologies should decrease the time from sample to insight for our users.”

ROSALIND is a cloud platform that connects researchers to differential expression and pathway exploration in a highly collaborative environment. It enables users without formal bioinformatics training to explore their data deeply and extract meaningful insights rapidly. In addition to a streamlined, interactive user interface, ROSALIND enables researchers to compare across datasets and share insights with colleagues.

“We are very excited to open up ROSALIND to the full nCounter user base and help users complete their studies faster,” said Tim Wesselman, CEO of OnRamp Bio. “Never before has team-science and speed to result been more important, and the combination of nCounter, ROSALIND, and NanoString’s customer base of world-class researchers sets the stage for many exciting discoveries to come.”
