ddSEQ™ Single-Cell Isolator

The ddSEQ Single-Cell Isolator is part of the Illumina® Bio-Rad® Single-Cell Sequencing Solution, a platform that brings Bio-Rad's Droplet Digital™ technology and Illumina's market-leading sequencing expertise to single-cell gene expression studies.

The ddSEQ Single-Cell Isolator works with the Illumina® Bio-Rad® SureCell™ WTA 3' Library Prep Kit for the ddSEQ™ System. This technology utilizes disposable microfluidic cartridges to coencapsulate single cells and barcodes into subnanoliter droplets, where cell lysis and barcoding occur. RNA-Seq libraries are subsequently prepared and sequenced. Analysis is conducted via BaseSpace.
