Fluidigm High-Throughput Single-Cell mRNA Sequencing Prep

A new high-throughput single-cell mRNA sequencing workflow is available for Fluidigm's C1 system. 

The validated workflow includes a new advanced integrated fluidic circuit and reagent kit to increase throughput and ease of use while decreasing per-cell sequencing and preparation costs.

The workflow can capture up to 800 cells at a time and can facilitate two runs per day, enabling large-scale characterization of heterogeneous samples. The new fluidics circuit features two inlets for cell loading to facilitate case-control studies and the assay protocol enables multiplexing and cell pooling.
