iPSC Sample Prep for 10x with NanoCellect

Gently Sort iPSCs upstream of 10x Genomics applications.

Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs) have made a dramatic impact in biological research where they are used to study tissue and organ development, drug discovery, and a wide range of diseases. Single-cell RNA sequencing, has become a valuable tool to study the diversity and heterogeneity of cells contributing to a phenotype. Since iPSCs are fragile cells, mechanical stress can obscure or skew the scRNA-seq results by activating genes related to cell stress or differentiation.

This application note demonstrates that using a cell sorter upstream of your 10x Genomics applications results in improved library complexity.

Frequently Asked Questions

paul.jpg Hello and welcome to the 10x Newsletter.
My name is Paul Gooding and I'm the Field Application Scientist with Millennium Science for their Genomics portfolios in Australia and New Zealand.
I thought it would be fun to host an FAQ section where I could post the most common questions that I get asked about 10x Genomics solutions and technologies, and the most up to date responses. There is also a link to send in your own question, I will do my best to answer it in the following newsletter

What is the best way to count cells?

Accurate cell counting is critical for success with single cell experiments. The following cell counting methods are recommended:

  • Countess II Automated Cell Counter (Thermo Fisher), cell size range 7-60 µm, limited in measuring viability of very small cells
  • Hemocytometer, any cell size range
  • Scepter Handheld Automated Cell Counter (Millipore), cell size range 3-18 µm and 8-25 µm, limited dynamic range

The aim is to generate a single cell suspension between 700 - 1200 cells/µl. The cell suspension should be counted at least 3-4 times and the average of all measurements should be taken. The standard deviation between all counts should not be >25%.

A flowchart outlining the recommended sample preparation procedure can be found here
