New GEM-X Chemistry for Single Cell Assays from 10x Genomics

The latest generation of 10x Genomics chemistry for single cell transcriptomics is now available. The GEM-X chemistry upgrades the previous Next-GEM technology to provide substantial advantages:

  • Increased sensitivity- detects 2x more genes (than Next-GEM)
  • Increased cell capture efficiency reduces the required number of input cells- (around 70-80% efficiency)
  • Increased cell capture number- up to 20,000 cells per sample
  • Lower rate of multiplets (capture of more than one cell per barcode)
  • Lower price per sample

GEM-X is now incorporated into the 3' Gene Expression Assay and the 5' Gene Expression and Immune Profiling Assays. Contact us for more information or to discuss your project.
