Reagent delivery system
All fragments produced within a partition share a common barcode
Next GEM technology creates a unique reagent delivery system that partitions cells or nuclei and prepares sequencing libraries in parallel, such that all fragments produced within a partition share a common barcode. This process ensures that a sample maintains its single cell characteristics, with each barcode enabling a fragment to be traced back to its cell or nucleus of origin. In this way, barcoded fragments can be processed in bulk downstream and still be linked to individual cells.
A simple workflow combines large partition numbers with a massively diverse barcode library to generate >100,000 barcode-containing partitions in a matter of minutes.
Seamless integration into existing lab workflows
Chromium single cell workflows fit easily into your existing lab infrastructure. The end-to-end single cell sequencing solutions include sample preparation support and turnkey data analysis and visualization tools.
