Single-cell applications at Single Cell Discoveries

Get a high-resolution view of your mechanism of action. We support target discovery, mechanism of action analysis, efficacy, and off- target effect studies with the highest-quality single-cell data.

Mechanism of Disease and Biomarker Discovery

Target Identification

Target Validation and Mechanism of Action

Lead Identification and Optimization


Clinical Trials



Optimize the safety and efficacy of gene editing by validating transgene expression in cells, revealing cell tropism, and studying transcriptomic response after administration.

Drug Development

By identifying differentially expressed genes in specific cell types, disease states, and responders/non-responders, single-cell sequencing can accelerate target and biomarker discovery.

Cell Type Identification

Identify novel or rare cell types by analyzing gene expression profiles of individual cells and grouping them based on similarities in their transcriptional signatures.

Immune Profiling

Insight into functional states of immune cells in response to antigenic stimulation and treatment; BCR/TCR sequencing guides immuno-oncology therapy development, such as monoclonal antibodies and cell therapies.
