Fluidigm REAP-Seq Protocol for C1 System

Fluidigm has introduced a REAP-seq (RNA expression and protein sequencing) protocol for use with its C1 sample prep system for single-cell genomics. C1 REAP-seq enables characterization of unique cellular subtypes and functional states by measuring the expression of both cellular proteins and RNAs. Users can pair the protocol with functional imaging assays that measure differences in cell size, morphology, or phenotype within the clear C1 microfluidic cell chambers. The firm developed C1 REAP-seq in collaboration with Merck for co-detection of both cellular protein and RNA using microfluidic technology.
