Single-cell sequencing reveals the full complexity of cellular diversity compared to bulk sequencing. It is primarily used to address challenges in the study of uncommon cell types, such as circulating tumor cells, cell-lineage associations, and heterogeneous samples. In-depth single-cell sequencing allows easy and efficient exploration of the cellular functions of individual cells. Use single-cell sequencing to explore the landscapes of malignant cells and immune cells, tumor heterogeneity, and the underlying mechanisms of tumor biological behaviors in your clinical trial.

Precision for Medicine provides an end-to-end package of single-cell sequencing solutions, making use of the latest technology on the market: the 10x Genomics Chromium system and Illumina NGS platform. We offer high-throughput and high-accuracy single-cell sequencing service, coupled with a fast turnaround time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Single-cell sequencing is a next-generation sequencing method involving single-cell isolation, transcriptome characterization, and sequencing library generation. Single-cell sequencing uncovers heterogeneity at a high resolution by revealing cellular gene expression, quantity, and diversity in a sample.

The main difference between single-cell sequencing and traditional methods of bulk sequencing is that single-cell sequencing allows for characterization of heterogeneous samples by profiling the whole transcriptome at a single-cell resolution. Single cell is often used in conjunction with traditional methods of phenotyping such as flow cytometry or multiplexed immunofluorescence to obtain a comprehensive understanding of samples.
