Dolomite Microfluidics, Charlestown, Mass, has launched the Single Cell RNA-Seq chip for simple, reliable creation of single cell libraries. The chip enables researchers to use droplet-based microfluidic methods to help explore the behavior of thousands of individual cells, providing a rapid and easy way to screen for new or cryptic cell types. Manufactured from glass, the chip offers optical transparency and robust, reproducible processing of 1 ml samples in approximately 12 hours. Cells are individually encapsulated with uniquely barcoded RNA capture beads for high-throughput sequencing. Combined with a gentle sample loop method to minimize bead shearing and contamination due to premature cell lysis, the chip enables rapid preparation of single cell cDNA libraries.
