Proteona ESCAPE RNA Sequencing

Proteona, a spinout from the National University of Singapore and A*STAR, has launched Enhanced Single-Cell Analysis with Protein Expression (ESCAPE) RNA sequencing as a service and early access kit. ESCAPE RNA-seq measures both gene expression and proteins from the same single cells. Proteona provides the antibodies and reagents for making the protein expression sequencing libraries and 10x Genomics' platform can then be used to make the single-cell RNA sequencing libraries.
