Fluidigm Single Cell Centre of Excellence
The Fluidigm Single Cell Centre of Excellence hosts the latest Fluidigm C1™ Single Cell Auto Prep, which is based on Fluidigm's innovative microfluidic technology, enabling researchers to rapidly and reliably isolate, process, and profile individual cells for genomic analysis.
The Centre also hosts a Fluidigm Biomark™ HD system, which enables automated high throughput qPCR of over 9,000 reactions in a single run. The Biomark™ HD system utilises the company's innovative integrated fluidic circuits (IFCs) to automate PCR reactions in nanolitre volumes.
Together, the C1 and Biomark systems enable high-throughput single-cell mRNA sequencing, targeted gene expression, mRNA sequencing, miRNA expression profiling, digital PCR, copy number studies/genotyping, targeted DNA sequencing, whole exome sequencing and whole genome sequencing.
To facilitate the use of the Fluidigm system, the Centre manages a 5,000 Taqman Library for use when accessing these technologies.
