High resolution profiling of biological systems powered by microfluidics
Droplet genomics is a technology that allows compartmentalized picolitre reactions to be carried out in a high throughput fashion. scRNA-seq and sNuc-seq are methodologies where isolated cells or nuclei are used to profile gene expression. The Nadia product range can readily encapsulate cells, nuclei and other biologicals using microfluidic technology. Analyze your biologicals at high resolution, singulated by over thousands of rapidly generated droplets.
Single cell RNA sequencing
Single cell RNA Sequencing (scRNA-Seq) is a tool that provides access to the transcriptomes of thousands of single cells – giving unprecedented insight into tissues at single cell resolution. This offers vital information about heterogeneity and cell-specific dynamics, which is key to understanding many diseases, immunity, development and more. This is in contrast to traditional techniques, that either allowed analysis of a few genes in thousands of individual cells (e.g., in situ hybridization), or the expression profile of thousands of genes, but only on homogenized samples.
Single nuclei RNA sequencing
Single nuclei RNA Sequencing (sNuc-Seq) is a technique which uses isolated nuclei instead of whole cells to profile gene expression in cells which are difficult to isolate. Using droplet microfluidic technology this enables users to profile thousands of nuclei at low cost, in a highly parallel method
How it works
SNuc-seq uses droplet microfluidics to encapsulate single nuclei with uniquely barcoded mRNA capture beads. Following downstream processing and sequencing, the transcriptomes of thousands of single nuclei can be analysed, and unique cell types identified.
sNuc-seq uses droplet microfluidics to encapsulate single nuclei with uniquely barcoded mRNA capture beads. Following downstream processing and sequencing, the transcriptomes of thousands of single nuclei can be analysed, and unique cell types identified.
Nuclei can usually be rapidly and easily isolated from frozen tissues, without the extended incubation and processing required for isolating single cells. The rapid isolation of nuclei from complex tissue will allow researchers to acquire transcriptomes that are relatively unperturbed by the isolation procedure.
