Frequently Asked Questions

Chromium X is our most flexible instrument, with the most advanced hardware and wireless connectivity. It runs all single cell assays, including new high-throughput assays for Single Cell Immune Profiling and Single Cell Gene Expression. Chromium Controller runs our low- and standard-throughput assays. It does not run high-throughput assays.

Chromium X is compatible with all our current single cell assays, including low-, standard- and high-throughput options.

Chromium X is not compatible with workflow automation.

Chromium iX does not run high-throughput (HT) assays. However, an easy software upgrade is available to move from Chromium iX to Chromium X and enable HT compatibility. Both instruments are compatible with the rest of our single cell assays.
