Single-Cell Genomics Platform
Gentle sample isolation is essential not to bias against vulnerable cell types while fast isolation is desirable to reduce degradation of nucleic acids.
Thus, prior to initiating a project at the Single Cell Genomics Platform, users are asked to determine and thoroughly evaluate a cell or nucleus isolation strategy suitable for their target tissue and research question. Users are furthermore strongly encouraged to evaluate their sample quality (e.g. RNA integrity) preceding single cell genomics work at the facility.
Once a project is accepted by the Single Cell Genomics Platform, users must follow sample preparation and deposition instructions provided by the platform.
