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 use of the Fluidigm system, the Centre manages a 5,000 Taqman Library for use when accessing these technologies.
