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

Can cells be shipped to/from another Lab ?

Cells should be cryopreserved and shipped on dry ice with enough dry ice to prevent cells from thawing. You must expect some decrease in viability and total cell recovery after cryopreservation, the degree will primarily depend on the cell integrity and cryopreservation conditions. See the following Demonstrated Protocols:

  1. Fresh frozen human peripheral blood mononuclear cells for single cell RNA sequencing
  2. Fresh frozen human-mouse cell line mixtures for single cell RNA sequencing

It is recommended that at least one million cells are frozen to ensure enough cells will be recovered post-thaw. You can expect to lose almost half from the freeze-thaw and during the wash and centrifugation steps.

After thawing, cells should be washed and filtered, then the final cell suspension counted prior to loading.
