  • Webinar: Sample Preparation and Cell Isolation for Multiplexed, Single-Cell Sequencing Analysis

    Join this free webinar to learn how to optimize sample preparation and obtain quality data from a multiplexed, single-cell sequencing assay. Increasingly, single-cell sequencing is used to profile the transcriptome of rare cell populations, resolve antigen binding specificities of T cells, and trace distinct cell lineages in development.

  • Barcoding Nuclei to Illuminate Single-Cell Epigenetics

    Single-cell sequencing has proven invaluable to understanding the biology of heterogeneous samples such as brain or tumor tissues. However, sorting individual cells into wells for downstream sequencing does not provide adequate throughput needed for meaningful analysis of the epigenetic states of the cells. To address this challenge, this research team developed a new methodology to analyze properties of single cells by labeling cell nuclei with DNA "barcodes" and distributing them using the SH800 sorter from Sony Biotechnology.

  • Pandemic Prevention: The Sprint Toward Protective Antibody Treatments

    Can antibodies be used as potential complements to vaccines? This team scours the planet looking for human donors to isolate PBMCs from those exposed to Rift Valley Fever in Kenya, to Ebola survivors. Supporting this important work, the Sony SH800 cell sorter has become an essential tool to isolate the right cells for a pipeline to generate antibody sequences that will ultimately build effective medical countermeasures.
