About us

Welcome to the BBSRC Single Cell Sequencing Platform

The role of this platform is to provide state of the art technologies to aid academic and industrial partners in a wide range of sequencing applications.

Housed in the Biomolecular Sciences building at North Haugh, this platform consists of;

  • Agilent 4200 TapeStation System – for quality control of sequencing libraries and samples
  • 10X Genomics Chromium X Controller – for single cell sorting and barcoding
  • Illumina NextSeq1000 – for generation of DNA and RNA sequencing data

For all enquiries, including quotes and help with grant costing, please contact:
