Research & Development

We are
committed to being on the leading edge

R&D is at the heart of Single Cell Discoveries. We pioneered the SORT-seq and VASA-seq methodologies and are driven to keep innovating new ways to study single-cell multi-omics and spatial modalities. Our team is continuously working to implement better protocols that improve the accuracy, resolution, flexibility, and ultimately value of our services.

Overview

An expert team driving
innovation and versatility

We are driven to innovate

Our team has deep experience with the technology and an insatiable curiosity that keeps our services futureproof by optimizing our methods, assimilating new protocols, and upgrading our infrastructure.

We like challenges

Our R&D unit is eager to work on your non-standard project, whether it is a novel application, a tough tissue, or an uncommon species requiring technological tinkering. We say "yes" to challenges others reject.

We keep you ahead of the curve

We are dedicated to offering clients the most advanced technologies in the single-cell and spatial field to give them an edge against the competition and accelerate their therapeutics towards the clinic.

 

We consistently evolve

Our R&D team is always working on adaptations to our current services to improve client experience and elevate data quality. Recently, we have introduced automated nuclei isolation, targeted amplification, and fixed RNA profiling.
