Fluidigm Medium-Cell HT IFC

Fluidigm has launched its medium cell, high-throughput integrated fluidic circuit to isolate single cells for mRNA sequencing analysis. The circuit captures up to 800 medium-size cells with higher single-cell capture efficiency, which enables researchers to scale cell lineage studies using Fluidigm's C1 system, the company said. The new workflow supports the identification of cell subpopulations present at low abundance across a wide range of cell types, including cancer and stem cells.
