The Single Cell facility houses the Fluidigm system, mainly consisting of the C1 and the Biomark, and the nanostring nCounter system. The Fluidigm C1 functions to isolate single cells and create pre-amplified cDNA for further downstream analysis. The Fluidigm Biomark produces high-throughput gene expression data. The nanostring nCounter system is capable of generating sensitive single cell transcript counts with minimal amplification based on, up to, 800 genes.
