The compact and easy-to-use Chromium Single Cell Controller has been designed to rapidly and efficiently automate the equivalent of 100,000s to 1,000,000s of pipetting steps for highly parallel sample partitioning and molecular barcoding.
Encapsulate your sample into hundreds to tens of thousands of uniquely addressable partitions in minutes, each containing an identifying barcode for downstream analysis.
Each Gel Bead, infused with millions of barcoded oligonucleotides, is mixed with a sample wich can be high molecular weight (HMW) DNA, individual cells, nuclei, or Cell Beads. Gel Beads and samples are then added to an oil-surfactant solution to create Gel Beads in EMulsion (GEMs), which act as individual reaction vesicles in which the Gel Beads are disolved and the sample is barcoded. Barcoded products are pooled for downstream reactions to create short-read sequencer compatible libraries. After sequencing, the resulting barcoded short read sequences are fed into turnkey analysis pipelines that use the barcode information to map reads back to their original HMW DNA, single cell, or single nucleus of origin.
