Our top 10 favorite reactions to Xperience 2021: #Xperience10x

Olivia Habern

The dust has settled, and we’re all wondering—did that really just happen? The answer is yes. Thank you to the global audience of scientists and 10x-ers who joined our first ever product reveal event, Xperience 2021, held virtually on February 24 and March 3. Your participation, excitement, and vision of future scientific discovery made Xperience 2021 a success. Now, we’d like to feature you and #Xperience10x all over again through the eyes of your Twitter posts—our favorite reactions and shoutouts from Xperience 2021.

If you couldn’t make it or just want to re-experience the excitement, register to visit the Xperience 2021 content hub for on-demand access to full sessions from the event, including some exciting updates on new products across our Chromium Single Cell, Visium Spatial, and In Situ technology platforms.

10 tweets from Xperience 2021

1. The “how I’m feeling right now.” Super relatable.

Honestly, the screenshot doesn’t do it justice. Check out the tweet to see this GIF in its full glory.

We’re right there with you @HumphreysLab in your excitement for the resolution revolution—Visium HD! And so are a few other scientists. Check out these reactions to our announcement of a 1,500-fold increase in resolution from the first generation of spatial transcriptomics technology.

2. "The biobank samples and I are ready!”

Okay, @LGMartelotto, you were on a roll at Xperience 2021, so we’ll give you one more shoutout. And based on the responses to this Tweet, it’s safe to say many scientists were excited about our Fixed RNA Profiling kit!

7. Saving samples with fixed RNA profiling

Check out these responses!

We can’t wait to see how access to fixed samples will expand the potential of clinical studies and ensure efficiency for your sample collection process.

Beyond ensuring access to your samples, a major theme at Xperience 2021 was scale. We want to give scientists the flexibility to scale up single cell experiments to 1 million cells routinely or scale down studies to pilot single cell tools and optimize conditions. That’s where throughput comes in...

8. Highs and lows

Last but certainly not least, we announced our plans for In Situ analysis. We're building an end-to-end solution, fully supported on FFPE, fixed-frozen, and fresh-frozen samples. Our goal is to enable spatially resolved single-molecule detection of RNA and proteins at subcellular resolution.

10. “Let’s go sequence a whole mouse brain.”
