The Chromium Single Cell Gene Expression Solution

Go Beyond Traditional Gene Expression Analysis

The Chromium Single Cell Gene Expression Solution provides a comprehensive, scalable solution for cell characterization and gene expression profiling of hundreds to tens of thousands of cells. Our latest improvements allow you to detect even more unique transcripts per cell and with the addition of Feature Barcoding technology, you can get a more complete molecular readout cell by cell—identify cell-specific CRISPR-mediated perturbations or simultaneously measure gene and cell surface protein expression in the same cell, with virtually unlimited possibilities for the additional feature types.

Go beyond traditional gene expression analysis to characterize cell populations, cell types, cell states, and more on a cell-by-cell basis. From assessing tumor heterogeneity and stem cell composition, to dissecting neuronal populations—the technological advancements provided by the Chromium Single Cell Gene Expression Solution, along with turnkey software tools, allow the creation of high complexity libraries from single cells to maximize insight from any sample type.

  • Identify and characterize rare cell types
  • Analyze and understand cellular heterogeneity and how this contributes to your biological system
  • Perform cellular phenotyping with single cell RNA-seq to identify novel targets, biomarkers, and cell types and states without the need for pre-selected targets
  • Evaluate mRNA and cell surface protein expression profiles within the same cell
  • Perform high throughput and high resolution functional genetic screens in tens of thousands of cells simultaneously
  • Assess comprehensive gene expression phenotypes for individual CRISPR perturbations
Gene Expression Profiling

Gene Expression Profiling

Uncover cell-to-cell gene expression variability and identify rare cell types in heterogeneous samples to better characterize cellular contributions during development and disease. Our latest improvements vastly increase sensitivity, so you can detect even more unique transcripts per cell.
