Service Selection Tool
service selection tool - Step 1 of 3

Which sequencing services should I use?

Use the service selection tool to get immediate advice on choosing the right service for your sequencing project.

The single-cell sequencing tool advises you on one of the following services:

  • 10x Genomics Single Cell Gene Expression
  • 10x Genomics Single Cell Immune Profiling
  • SORT-seq
  • VASA-seq
How to start

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.
Step 1 - Consultation with our clients
Step 1


Every project starts with a consultation 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 - Preparation of the client samples
Step 2

Sample Preparation

For 10x Genomics, create a single-cell suspension from your sample and either cryopreserve or methanol-fix the cells. For plate-based methods, 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 sequencing protocol in our facility. 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 consulting team is ready to assist with further guidance or tailored analysis projects such as pseudotime and gene set enrichment analysis.

Why choose SCD?

We are scRNA-seq experts

A 100% focus on single-cell and spatial transcriptomics in our team enables us to take on both large-scale projects and create customized solutions for each client project.

Single-cell sequencing service provider

You will access unmatched experience

We have been working in the single-cell field since 2012. Our co-founder and CEO Mauro Muraro published our SORT- seq technology, and our R&D consultant is the mind behind VASA-seq. We have experience in over 40 organisms and 30 tissues and are able to quickly adapt workflows for novel samples.

You stay ahead of the curve

You can follow our continuous integration of leading-edge technologies into our portfolio and get access to the latest advancements. Our R&D department works to both internalize the best commercial platforms and advance our own single-cell innovations.

Work with us as a collaborative partner

We are dedicated to maintaining a high-touch, collaborative relationship with clients as we scale our capacity to accommodate larger projects. We act as a thought partner and a catalyst for biological discovery.
