Frequently Asked Questions
Currently, only the Next GEM Single Cell Gene Expression 3’ v3.1 kit has been adapted for automation. Chromium Next GEM Automated Single Cell 3' reagent kits include single-use, automation-specific reagents that come in pre-aliquoted strip tubes with the flexibility to run 1–8 samples without wasted reagents. These reagents are color-coded and 2D-barcoded for error-proof reagent loading and tracking.
The data is at parity with that of the manual version of the Chromium Single Cell Gene Expression Solution, and shows reproducibility and consistency from channel to channel and instrument to instrument. Refer to the Chromium Connect: Consistent Automated Single Cell Gene Expression Library Generation (CG000284) technical note for more information.
Chromium Connect provides an end-to-end workflow from sample input to library generation. All library preparation steps from GEM generation, GEM-RT, cDNA amplification and clean-up, and library construction are performed on the instrument deck.
The instrument price includes installation, training, 6-month preventative maintenance, and a 12-month warranty on the instrument.
No, Chromium Connect software has been specifically designed for use with our highly optimized automated 10x Genomics protocols.
