Single-Cell Sequencing in Developmental Biology

Single-Cell Sequencing
Service Provider in London

Single-cell RNA sequencing is a powerful technology that has revolutionized the field of transcriptomics by enabling researchers to analyze gene expression at the level of individual cells.

We have experience with over forty species

The ability to study gene expression at the single-cell level has proven particularly useful in the investigation of complex tissues and systems. It allows researchers to examine the diversity of gene expression profiles within a tissue and to identify rare cell populations that would otherwise be missed using conventional transcriptomics methods. Our customizable options, including various sequencing platforms and downstream analysis services, ensure that researchers have the necessary tools and support to achieve their objectives.

We stay ahead of the curve

Our state-of-the-art facility is equipped with the latest technology and equipment, allowing us to provide fast, accurate results. With an expert team of scientists, we can offer high-quality, dependable results that can aid in advancing your research and fostering innovation.

Ship your samples from London to NL

Sample collection and delivery can be easily managed by shipping samples to our facility via reputable couriers such as TNT and FedEx. We also offer the option to order cell-capture plates online for SORT-seq or VASA-seq, with delivery directly to the researcher's location. Our team is dedicated to providing exceptional support and assistance to our clients throughout the entire research process.

If you are a scientist in London looking to gain a deeper understanding of individual cells, we invite you to contact Single Cell Discoveries today to learn more about our services. We look forward to helping you achieve your research goals.

  • 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.
