SINGLE-CELL SEQUENCING SOLUTIONS


Cell populations are seldom homogeneous and similar in their characteristics. While traditional bulk sequencing methods can be powerful, cost-effective tools for analysis, they cannot detect differences that arise between individual cells in complex environments. With recent developments in microfluidics and molecular barcoding, however, NGS-based technologies for genomic, transcriptomic, and epigenomic research have increasingly focused on the analysis of single cells, enabling scientists to examine the diversity of heterogenous cell populations and uncover new biological discoveries. 

GENEWIZ offers a suite of end-to-end single-cell sequencing solutions utilizing the latest technology on the market: the 10x Genomics® Chromium™ and Illumina® NovaSeq™. 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.

Single-Cell RNA-Seq

Analyze transcriptome heterogeneity at the single-cell level. GENEWIZ offers optimized workflows for 5’ and 3’ gene expression libraries to uncover cellular differences that are masked by bulk RNA sequencing.

 

Single-Cell ATAC-Seq

Identify chromatin accessibility in the epigenome by profiling thousands of single cells in parallel, and discover how chromatin structure and DNA-binding proteins regulate gene expression in varying states and cellular processes.

 

Single-Cell Immuno-Profiling

Examine the immune repertoires of individual B and T cells by physically pairing VH/VL or α/β chains in B- or T-cell receptors, respectively, while simultaneously capturing data for gene expression, V(D)J clone types, and cell surface protein expression.
