    10X Genomics Seminar

    From large-scale sample acquisition and processing, to fragile or dying cells that are easily damaged during handling, many ambitious Single cell studies face frustrating logistical issues. Fixed RNA Profiling was developed to overcome these challenges, allowing you to preserve biology at the point of collection. In our upcoming seminar, we’re focusing on sample prep for this new assay.
