Question: How does the Human Transcriptome Probe Panel v2 differ from the Human Transcriptome Probe Panel v1?
Answer: Below is the high-level differences between two Human Transcriptome Probe Panels used with Visium Spatial Gene Expression for FFPE and Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression assays:
- There are now primarily three probe pairs designed against each gene instead of a single probe pair. A small portion of the highest expressing genes contains a single probe pair (<10% of genes).
- ~54,000 probe pairs are used to detect >18,000 genes.
- Now includes Nuclear-encoded mitochondrial genes.
