April 1, 2021 -- 10x Genomics has launched its chromium single-cell gene expression low-throughput kit, a new offering designed to enable single cell analysis.
The new kit reduces the startup cost for a single experiment, thus allowing a broader base of scientists to conduct single cell analysis, the firm said. Scientists will also have the ability to use the 10x Genomics Cloud platform to perform a standard analysis of every sample at no additional cost.
Key features of the new kit include:
The company plans to enable high-throughput analysis with its next-generation Chromium X instrument, which is scheduled for release later this year.
The single-cell gene expression kit can be used with 10x Genomics' CellPlex solution that allows for multiplexing of up to 96 samples in a single chip.
