Fast, Cost-Effective Single Cell RNA Sequencing

There is a growing desire to answer questions about the genome at the level of the individual cell. Single cell technologies promise to make significant impact on research and clinical studies; however, complimentary high-throughput sequencing for these studies requires large capital expenditure and expensive consumables. The G4™ Sequencing Platform addresses these challenges and enables researchers to generate low-cost, accurate scRNA-seq results with more flexibility and speed than any other sequencer on the market.

Delivering Power and Flexibility for Single Cell Sequencing Labs

The G4 features proprietary 4-color Rapid SBS chemistry and advanced engineering, designed to provide labs with unmatched operational efficiency and industry-leading run times.  The G4 integrates seamlessly into existing NGS workflows and is well suited for single cell sequencing labs.

Key capabilities:

  • Single-day turnaround times
  • Highly accurate data
  • 1 – 4 flow cell, 4 – 16 lane run flexibility
  • Up to 3.2 B reads per run

Highly Accurate Single Cell RNA Sequencing on the G4

  • Highly-accurate single cell data comparable to the NextSeq 2000
  • Rapid and cost-efficient sequencing of single cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) libraries
  • Seamless compatibility of the G4 Sequencing Platform with 10x library preparation workflows and bioinformatics pipelines
