Single Cell Discoveries, BioTuring to Integrate Single-Cell Sequencing Products for Service

NEW YORK ­– Netherlands-based Single Cell Discoveries and BioTuring of San Diego said on Wednesday that they are collaborating to integrate their single-cell sequencing products.

Under the agreement, Single Cell Discoveries will offer BioTuring's BBrowser single-cell multiomics analysis platform as part of its single-cell sequencing services.

BioTuring launched BBrowser, originally called BioTuring Browser, in 2018. The browser contains single-cell and bulk sequencing data from nearly 30 million cells from published scientific work. It aids researchers in data visualization, downstream analytics including spatial transcriptomics, and data management and sharing.

"Data analysis is one of the most challenging aspects of a single-cell sequencing project," Mauro Muraro, CEO of Single Cell Discoveries, said in a statement. "As BioTuring is at the forefront of making single-cell data accessible, we are very happy with this collaboration. The collaboration fits our commitment on providing a complete, end-to-end service to our clients that includes data interpretation."
