10X Genomics and Illumina


10x Genomics and Illumina jointly bring you a webinar by Dr. Jasmine Plummer from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Her webinar will focus on the combination of 10x technologies, single cell RNAseq and Visium with Illumina sequencing to reveal spatial resolution of the developing human fetal cortex.


Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's AGCT Core is a 10x Genomics Certified Service Provider.

New Equipment


The Singulator is a benchtop hands-off dissociator that provides both whole-cell and nuclei tissue dissociations. The S100 model comes with a chilling chamber for cold dissociation to decrease transcriptional stress response and dissociation bias for nuclei isolation. Protocols are quick and easy to use, with the ability to make small changes to suit the tissue of interest. Cells isolation take anywhere from 20-60min while nuclei only take 7min to process. The singulator is a new addition to our Sample Preparation workflow with high reproducibility and viability.
