Single Cell Technology Core

Overview of Services

The Single Cell Biology Service Core handles fresh frozen, fixed frozen and FFPE tissue sections, and single cell or single nuclei suspensions. We will prepare samples for assays and provide convenient, detailed reports on processed data. Current technologies include:

  • 10x Genomics 
  • Akoya Biosciences CODEX (Spatial proteomics)
  • NanoString GeoMx (Spatial Transcriptomics)

For library sequencing, we have an Illumina NextSeq 2000 and access to a NovaSeq 6000.

The Core is part of the Center for Single Cell Biology which drives scientific discovery and advancement of pediatric patient care by harnessing the power of single-cell technologies.
