Dr. Bram Slütter Leiden Academic Centre for Drug Research

“It’s the expertise that Single Cell Discoveries has in single-cell and T cell receptor sequencing, even though you are flexible, that makes it preferential for us to work with an industry partner like you.”

Dr. Samuel García Pérez Galicia Sur Health Research Institute

"Fantastic job made by a really professional and friendly team. I strongly recommend Single Cell Discoveries for sequencing services."

Dr. Vanessa LaPointe MERLN Institute for Technology-Inspired Regenerative Medicine

“What we appreciate most is the nature of the collaboration. With Single Cell Discoveries, we could discuss the design of our 10x Genomics experiments, which analyses to do, and how to solve our challenges.”

The premier single-cell CRO

How we supercharge
your research

Project Design

  • Strategize with our PhD-level account executives to decide between multiple single-cell technologies, including two exclusively offered by us.
  • Leverage our experience with 200+ clients over 1000+ unique projects.

Sample Processing

  • Run in our purpose-built single-cell lab with Illumina Novaseq X.
  • Benefit from our experience with 8500+ samples sequenced in 40+ organisms and 30+ tissue types with over 10M single cells sequenced.

Data Analysis

  • Gain quick insights into your single-cell data with our preliminary analysis report with QC, clustering, and differential gene expression.
  • Uncover biological insights through custom data analysis with our bioinformaticians who have processed over 50 terabytes of single-cell data.
Person having online consultation
Step 1


Every project starts with one or more free consultations because no two single-cell projects are the same. Our experienced PhD-level team discusses your biological question, sample type, planning, data analysis options, and other wishes. This will ensure you select the best method for your project and can hit the ground running.

Step 2

Sample Preparation

For 10x Genomics, create a single-cell suspension from your sample and either cryopreserve or methanol-fix the cells. For SORT-seq, FACS-sort the single cells into the wells of our cell capture plates. Then, send your samples to our lab on dry ice. In the case of nuclei, the sample preparation depends on the project.

Step 3

Processing in Our Lab

Our experienced team performs the 10x Genomics protocol in our lab. We sequence the libraries on our Illumina NovaSeq X Plus or NextSeq 2000. We'll do multiple QC checks and keep you informed of the status of your project.

Exploring data analysis
Step 4

Data Analysis

Our data team performs preliminary data analysis using a Seurat pipeline, checks the data quality and discusses irregularities with our lab team if necessary. You will receive the raw data files, data report, and guiding explanations. Talk to our data consulting team for help or request additional assessments such as pseudotime and gene set enrichment analysis.

Which single-cell sequencing technology should I choose for my project?

That depends on your biological question, sample type, and budget. Feel free to schedule a meeting with one of our experts to discuss your project in more detail. We'll make sure to advise you on the best platform for your project.
