Single Cell Sequencing
Single cell sequencing is used for the study of heterogeneous samples, rare cell types, cell lineage relationships, and disease evolution. We offer high quality, affordable single cell services, with world-class support from our highly experienced single cell project experts.
Single Cell Sequencing Introduction
Single cell sequencing is commonly applied to solve problems associated with the study of heterogeneous samples, rare cell types, cell lineage relationships, and disease evolution. By using deep sequencing of DNA and RNA from a single cell, cellular functions of individual cells can be investigated in great detail.
BGI applies the superior method of Multiple Displacement Amplification (MDA) for single cell genomic DNA amplification (WGS/WES), and Switching Mechanism at 5′ End of RNA Template (SMART-seq2) for single cell RNA amplification (transcriptome/RNA quantification). Contact us with your project requirements, our experts are here to help.
Experience of 1000s of single cell projects, our experts are here to ensure your success.
Guaranteed data quality at competitive pricing enabled by proprietary technology.
Rapid turnaround times and expert support, no project too big or small

DNBSEQ™ Technology Platforms
BGI's Single Cell Sequencing services are typically executed with proprietary DNBSEQ™ sequencing technology platforms, for great sequencing data at some of the lowest costs in the industry. DNBSEQ™ can offer advantages in terms of lower amplification error rates and much lower duplication rates for some sequencing applications. In addition, studies have shown the lower index hopping rate in DNBSEQ™ platforms.
