10X Chromium gene expression (GEM-X)

(now available!) Profiling of gene expression levels at single-cell resolution.

10X Genomics is releasing a new version of the 3’ and 5’ GE workflows, including V(D)J immune profiling. The new chemistry is called GEM-X and will be available preliminarily from the end of Q1 2024. Some of the improvements in the new version include:

  • Increased cell recovery, up to 80%
  • Increased sensitivity
    • Up to 70% more genes detected
    • Up to 140% more UMIs detected
  • Higher cell numbers can be used per reaction due to reduced multiplet rates
  • More robust, with decreased rates of wetting failures

If you are interested in running your 3’ or 5’ GE experiment with GEM-X technology at NGI, please reach out to us at support@ngisweden.se
