How we work

Science is not a fixed process. We get that. As you go along, plans change and hypotheses along with them. As your trusted partner, we help you with every step in the process, from project design to data analysis and beyond. And when you've completed your project, we'll help you plan the next step.

Design

We'll help you design your first single-cell sequencing project and make sure it matches your biological question and fits your budget. With multiple options and technologies available, we'll always find a match for your project.

Process

Send us your samples and we’ll take care of the rest. We'll process your sample and generate ready-to-analyze data, while applying all the necessary QC steps throughout to ensure optimal quality of the outcome.

Analyze

To help you hit the ground running, we include a preliminary clustering and differential gene expression analysis with all our services. If you need dedicated data analysis support, we’ll send in the bioinformatics cavalry.

Research areas

Single-cell sequencing is used in many different areas of research. Whether your focus is Immunology, Oncology, Neuroscience or any problem in need of a single-cell solution: we can help.

Oncology

Assess tumor heterogeneity. Gain insight into mechanisms driving metastasis or therapy resistance.

Learn more

Immunology

Characterize immune cell types. Identify antigen specificity. Discover molecular drivers.

Learn more

Developmental biology

Unravel developmental processes. Discover molecular mechanisms behind development, congenital disease, or regeneration.

Learn more

Neuroscience

Gain insight into the complexity of the nervous system. Identify molecular mechanisms of neural function, disease and injury.

Champalimaud Foundation

Colorectal Zebrafish Xenograft Model

Champalimaud Foundation This research, conducted at the Champalimaud Foundation in Lisbon, is focused on the immune response after implantation of human cancer cells in zebrafish. The cells in the implanted tumors were characterized using SORT-seq. Here, we explain how SORT-seq contributed to this remarkable study.

How to analyze your Visium data

Recently we have added the 10x Genomics Visium Spatial Gene Expression solution to our portfolio. The Visium workflow generates two types of data: an H&E or Immunofluorescence (IF) tissue image and sequencing data in FASTQ files. But what are the options once you receive your data? Here, we provide you with an overview of tools…
