The BD Rhapsody Single-Cell Analysis system empowers and streamlines your research with a complete system of tools, including reagents and analysis software, that work together to meet your unique single-cell experimental needs. Achieve results while saving time with assays that dramatically reduce complexity, improve data and increasing efficiency of sequencing.

The BD Rhapsody Single-Cell Analysis System Features

  • Targeted assays—a specific gene panel approach can help generate similar results as a Whole Transcriptome Analysis (WTA) assay at a fraction of time and cost, due to improved detection sensitivity. This method also improves UMI counting efficiency, yielding dramatic experimental time and cost savings.
  • Archiving—Storing magnetic beads stably with intact cDNA generated from your sample allows storage of precious sample for up to 12 weeks. This gives users the flexibility to sequence samples when the time is available, and run multiple assays on the same sample by aliquoting or subsampling a pool of stored beads.
  • Sub-sampling—cDNA archived on magnetic beads may be split into one or more aliquots and amplified using custom or pre-designed panels. Sub-sampling allows users to reduce cost by providing the option to sequence a portion of the sample and the flexibility to test different panels on the sample.

    Available through the Single Cell Analysis Facility (SCAF)
