Frequently Asked Questions

Loupe Browser supports the analysis of data from the following products:

Loupe V(D)J Browser is a separate visualization software application that provides specific functionality to analyze TCR and BCR clonotype information from the Single Cell Immune Profiling product.

Loupe Browser is a point-and-click software that enables anyone, no matter their level of bioinformatics expertise, to analyze 10x Genomics data.

Loupe Browser uses a .loupe file to visualize 10x Genomics data. The .loupe file is generated by downloading and running the compatible 10x Genomics Analysis Software (see 10x Genomics Cloud Analysis for options to run software quickly and easily), which processes raw data into standard file formats that can be used for downstream interpretation. Once you have generated the Analysis Software output you can download the latest version of Loupe Browser and start to analyze your data.

The following resources are available to help you analyze data with Loupe Browser:

Loupe Browser is available at no cost to anyone analyzing 10x Genomics data.
