Dubai, UAE, 12 January 2017: 10x Genomics, Inc., a company focused on expanding genomics applications including single-cell research, has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Alliance Global FZ LLC to bring the Chromium™ System and solutions for genome, exome and single cell analysis to the Middle East and African (MEA) markets.
10x Genomics recently launched the Chromium Single Cell Controller which is a massively scalable tool for comprehensive single cell analysis. The instrument can interrogate hundreds to millions of cells, and features a simple and comprehensive workflow which enables users to quickly and easily prepare single cell sequencing libraries in less than a day.
The advantage of this partnership mainly lies in the fact that the Chromium workflows utilize and are fully compatible with the Illumina HiSeq XTM Ten, HiSeq®, NextSeq500® and MiSeq® sequencers, and enables a more expansive characterization of previously inaccessible genomic information. In addition, the Chromium Single Cell Solution allows for high-throughput, deep profiling of complex cell populations through single-cell gene expression analysis.
“By offering the Chromium System to our customers, we believe they will have a great chance to explore new frontiers on single-cell genomics research” said Nassim-Marie Hambouz, Group Commercial Manager at Alliance Global.
