10x Genomics Chromium X Platform

10x Genomics has announced pre-ordering for its Chromium X Series, a higher-throughput version of its single-cell analysis platform.

The Chromium X can deliver routine million-cell experiments at costs as low as $.02 per cell, according to the company. The firm expects instruments to ship later this quarter. The Chromium X Series is compatible with all of the company's existing low-throughput and standard single-cell assays and is supported by the 10x Genomics Cloud Analysis offering for data management, analysis, and collaboration. The series includes the Chromium iX, an instrument that runs tens of thousands of cells per run, but which can be upgraded to the higher-throughput model.
