As the use of NGS advances in clinical and applied spaces, the parallel processing of single cells from precious patient samples at high throughputs will be critical. With increasing demand for single-cell NGS analyses, several platforms have emerged based on microfluidics, such as droplet-based and multisample nanodispensing technologies. The ICELL8™ Single-Cell System enables researchers to look at hundreds of cells in a heterogeneous cell population without common microfluidic cell-size constraints, and the imaging limitations of the droplet-based systems, thereby reducing sample-handling artifacts.

Combining Takara Bio USA, Inc.’s SMARTer® solutions for DNA and RNA sequencing with the ICELL8 Single-Cell System enables the rapid processing of single cells and the generation of sequencing libraries from those cells. This presentation will review how pairing the ICELL8 Single-Cell System with SMARTer solutions allows single-cell researchers to perform a wide range of applications with more power and control—yielding deeper insights into their samples than ever before.
