Cellular Research's Precise Assays

Cellular Research has launched its Precise Assays for targeted RNA-seq experiments using single cells. Based on Cellular Research's patented molecular indexing technology, the Precise assays examine large numbers of standard or low-input mRNA samples from precious samples, or whenever absolute quantitation is required. The assays combine molecular and sample indexing in 96- and 384-sample formats, enabling customers to sequence up to 4,608 samples in one sequencing run without investment in new equipment or extensive training, Cellular Research said.

Early access customers and collaborators presented data generated with the assays at the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology conference this week in Marco Island, Fla.
