Microwell Device for Single-Cell RNA Capture Shows Potential for High-Throughput Applications | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) - Scientists from Columbia University have developed a new microwell device that enables solid-phase capture of RNA on either glass plates or beads, which they say could greatly increase throughput and have numerous applications for single-cell biology.

Led by Peter Sims, the researchers described their device and demonstrated its utility in single-cell RNA sequencing in a paper published online earlier this month in Genome Biology.
