single-cell sequencing

The startup is launching an instrument that will process up to 10,000 single cells for DNA sequencing as well as a panel that will target AML genes. 

A new set of papers reveals a range of gene expression influencers, identified using thousands of samples collected for the Genotype-Tissue Expression project.

The researchers plan to evaluate cfDNA and single cells isolated from the urine of patients who have had kidney transplants to identify signs of graft failure.

The system uses microfluidics and real-time image analysis to isolate single cells and provide visual documentation of monoclonality.

Research groups from the Broad Institute and the University of Washington have developed protocols to sequence RNA from large numbers of single nuclei and single cells. 

Investigators are searching for non-invasive biomarkers of rejection and earlier stage graft injury in children and adults who have received kidney transplants.

The group has filed a patent on the method and is interested in teaming up with an industry partner to commercialize it.
