This was created for Canopy Biosciences to promote their product Nanostrings. Nanostrings counts the number of specific RNA transcripts in a sample. It’s key features are precise quantitative readouts matched to specific transcripts and the ability to detect very low quantities. The artwork illustrated these features by having the RNA transcripts collected in marbles which were then sorted according to sequence at the bottom. The top of the artwork illustrates the more technical details of RNA reporter binding. The artwork was used in exhibition backdrops and across digital and print marketing.
Nanostrings allows for precise quantitative measurement of RNAs. It does this by the hybridisation of complementary RNAs that contains identification tags.
