Cellular Research Whole-Transcriptome Single-Cell Precise Assays

Cellular Research has launched an early access program for its whole-transcriptome single-cell precise assays. These assays combine molecular and sample indexing in 96- and 384-sample formats, enabling customers to sequence up to 4,608 samples in one run. The assays, based on Cellular Research's molecular indexing technology, offer absolute quantification and bias-free expression information, Cellular Research said in a statement. Cellular Research also states that these assays require no expensive dedicated laboratory equipment and the sequencing library is compatible with any Illumina sequencer.
