10x Advantages in Cancer Research

Cancer Research

Unmask Tumor Heterogeneity

Build a comprehensive view of tumor sub-clones and clonal evolution.

Map the Immune Response

Elucidate tumor infiltrating lymphocyte phenotypes and clonal antigen recognition within the tissue microenvironment, and research molecular and cellular responses to novel immunotherapies derived from single cell genomics’ discoveries.

Cancer Research
Unravel the Tumor Microenvironment

Determine the identity and heterogeneity of cell types in the tumor microenvironment.

Better Characterize Mutations in Cancer Susceptibility Genes

Reveal the molecular genetic basis for cancer by accurately detecting and resolving ambiguous variants, while maintaining haplotype information.
