Genome Technology Center (GTC): News

Coming Soon! (April-May)

The C1(TM) Single-Cell Auto Prep System from Fluidigm is a microfluidics-based technology that allows the isolation, staining, and preparation of single cells for downstream genomic applications.  Available applications are RNA-Seq and whole genome sequencing.  The reduced reaction volume results in library preps that cost a fraction of the currently used low input RNA-Seq preps available on the market.

The instrument will allow the integration and collaboration between the GTC and the Flow Cytometry Core directed by Peter Lopez, to maximize success, since a first step in this type of experiment will be cell enrichment of the populations of interest.  The Flow Cytometry Core's expertise with whole-cell assays will greatly enhance the value of this instrument to the NYULMC community.
