Spatially Resolved Transcriptomics

Spatial Transcriptomics is a powerful technology which allows the whole transcriptome to analysed within a positional context; enabling sequencing data to be visualised directly on a tissue histology section.


Expertise at every stage

The methodology for this service straddles several disciplines. At Newcastle University we combine the expertise from each of these discplines to provide the SpaRTAN service: Spatially Resolved Transcriptomics At Newcastle.

Using Visium technology from 10X Genomics, we take your tissue samples through the entire Visium process to deliver your results in an easy to interpret and visualise form, ready for immediate interpretation. We can also make human developmental material available for the process.

The service is enabled by the combination of four specialist services at Newcastle University:
