Cell populations are rarely homogeneous and synchronized in their characteristics. Single-cell RNA sequencing aims to uncover the transcriptome diversity in heterogeneous samples. Recent advances in microfluidics and molecular barcoding have made the transcriptional profiling of tens of thousands of individual cells cost-effective and easy to interpret.

GENEWIZ Single-Cell RNA-Seq utilizes the latest technology on the market: the 10x Genomics® Chromium™ system and Illumina® NovaSeq™ 6000. As an early adopter of these platforms, our optimized workflows—including pre-submission cryopreservation and post-submission dead cell removal— maximize project flexibility, speed, and data accuracy.

For bulk expression analysis of samples with picograms of RNA or just a few cells, use our Ultra-Low Input RNA-Seq service. Not sure which service is right for you? See our FAQ.

Case Study: Single-Cell RNA-Seq Analysis Identifies Rare Drug-Resistant Cancer Stem Cells

Cell populations are rarely homogeneous and synchronized in their characteristics. Standard RNA-Seq approaches are limited to reporting general expression levels thus omitting minor subpopulation profiles. This study highlights new single-cell RNA sequencing capabilities for identifying rare cells, characterizing their transcriptomes, and discovering potential biomarkers.
