C1 mRNA Seq HT maximizes your single-cell study size while minimizing library preparation and sequencing costs. This efficient workflow makes it easy for C1 users to pursue large-scale studies to explore heterogeneity and discover novel cell populations. The C1 mRNA Seq HT IFCs innovative architecture allows users to capture up to 800 single-cells and apply a cell barcode at first strand synthesis. Then, the IFC harvests barcoded cDNA into 20 multiplexed pools of 40 single cells each for library prep. This unique chemistryreduces both hands-on time and library preparation expense. The chemistry also employs a 3 end-counting strategy to increase sample pooling and throughput. Download the C1 mRNA Sequencing Data Sheet to learn more.
