Single Cell Genomics
The Single Cell Genomics Centre 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 that enables automated high throughput qPCR of over 9,000 targets 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, 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.
