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.


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.


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.


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.

RNA sequencing contributes to new understanding of SARS-CoV-2 in intestinal organoids

A collaborative study of Dutch research groups shows -for the first time- that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is able to infect gut organoids. This reseach was done at the Hubrecht Institute in Utrecht, the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam and Maastricht University. The results were published last Friday in Science. While the lungs seem to be the predominantly…

How to milk a snake without getting bitten

What do you get when you put a well-known snake expert, a famous professor in molecular genetics, and 3 Ph.D. students in a room? TOP-NOTCH SCIENCE! The research, conducted by 3 Ph.D. students from the group from Hans Clevers at the Hubrecht Institute, originally started as a joke at an informal get-together but was published…
