LC Sciences provides a fast, one-stop single-cell RNA sequencing solution – from your sample through data analysis.

Single-cell RNA-Seq can be used to examine the expression of individual cells and provides a higher resolution of cellular differences as compared to traditional RNA-Seq. Single-cell RNA-Seq enables us to understand the function of an individual cell in the context of its microenvironment.


  1. The latest in single-cell isolation and next-gen sequencing technology
  2. Experienced staff to assist you with experimental design
  3. Fast turnaround times
  4. Full bioinformatics analysis
  5. Expert technical support to assist with data interpretation


Single cell RNA Sequencing

Rapid Acceptance

Single-cell analysis has become one of the most interesting topics in contemporary biology and a rapidly growing field within the life sciences.

Cell Heterogeneity

Single-cell analysis has become an established method to reveal cell heterogeneity and subpopulation expression and for rare cell characterization.

True Expression

Understanding biological systems at a single cell resolution may reveal novel insights which remain masked by the conventional bulk RNA-based techniques.

Novel Cell Types

Single-cell transcriptome sequencing holds the potential to identify novel cell types and characterize the cellular composition of any organ or tissue in health and disease.

  1. Demultiplexing of raw base calls
  2. Performing alignment, filtering, barcode counting, and UMI counting
  3. Generating gene-barcode matrices and determining clusters
  4. Biostatistical analysis – expression analysis, multi-parameter data analysis, length distribution, transcript copy number comparisons, etc
  5. Aggregating outputs from multiple runs and normalizing runs to the same sequencing depth (if applicable)

Sample Data

Single cell RNA Sequencing

Sample Requirements

High-quality, viable cells – depending on cell type, freezing procedures need to be customized
