What You Can Do
Deeper characterization of cell types and states
Characterize complex cell populations and capture cellular heterogeneity to uncover hidden insights with combined epigenomic and gene expression profiling. Leverage gene expression markers to more easily interpret epigenetic profiles.
Discover new gene regulatory interactions
Combine discovery of regulatory elements with gene expression to explore gene regulatory interactions driving cell differentiation, development, and disease.
Make the most of your precious samples
Maximize insights from your limited samples by obtaining transcriptome and open chromatin information from the same cell.
Explore disease complexity
Understand how gene regulatory networks are disrupted in disease. Interrogate epigenetic remodeling and mechanisms of therapeutic resistance.

Chromium Single Cell Multiome ATAC + Gene Expression Reagents
With our reagent kits, simultaneously detect gene expression and open chromatin regions from the same single cell and generate ready-to-sequence NGS libraries.
Analysis and Visualization Software
Cell Ranger ARC, our analysis pipeline and Loupe Browser, our visualization software.

Prepare your sample
Start with a nuclei suspension isolated from cell culture, primary cells, or fresh or frozen tissue.Resources
Construct your 10x library
Construct paired single cell gene expression and ATAC 10x barcoded libraries using our reagent kits and Chromium Controller. Nuclei are first transposed in bulk, and then encapsulated with a 10x barcoded Gel Bead using the Chromium Controller. Within each nanoliter-scale partition, mRNA and transposed DNA fragments are labeled with 10x barcodes, where each barcode sequence represents the same unique cell.Resources
Analyze Your Data
Our Cell Ranger ARC analysis software generates open chromatin and gene expression profiles for each cell, identifies clusters of cells with similar profiles, and calculates linkages between open chromatin peaks and gene expression.
Analysis pipelines output
Output includes QC information and files that can be easily used for further analysis in our Loupe Browser visualization software, or third-party R or Python tools.Resources
Visualize Your Data
Use our Loupe Browser visualization software to interactively explore your results, compare chromatin accessibility and gene expression across cell types and states, and investigate linkages between open chromatin peaks and gene expression.
Do I need to be a bioinformatician to use it?
Loupe is a point-and-click software that’s easy for anyone to download and use.Resources
Frequently Asked Questions
It enables simultaneous profiling of the transcriptome (using 3’ gene expression) and epigenome (using ATAC-seq) from single cells to deepen your understanding of how genes are expressed and regulated across different cell types.
In the sample types tested with Single Cell Multiome ATAC + Gene Expression, performance of ATAC and gene expression is comparable to that of the corresponding standalone 10x Genomics workflow (Chromium Single Cell ATAC or Chromium Single Cell Gene Expression) when the starting input is nuclei.
No, currently Feature Barcode technology is not compatible with Single Cell Multiome ATAC + Gene Expression.
Yes, data from Single Cell ATAC and Single Cell Gene Expression is provided in a file format that is compatible with Single Cell Multiome ATAC + Gene Expression and can be integrated using third-party tools, such as Seurat.
