A truly integrated workflow: Save over 40% of time by using Rapid Single Cell


Multiplexing uniformity

plexWell auto-normalization ensures a highly even read distribution across single

  • Libraries were prepared from individual HEK293 cells and sequenced on a NextSeq® 500 instrument. All 96 cDNA samples were quantified and normalized for the Smart-seq2 workflow. For the plexWell workflow, cDNAs were diluted, by applying a global dilution factor derived from QC data for only 24 of the samples.

Transcript sensitivity:

plexWell Rapid Single Cell RNA Library Prep Kits enable high-sensitivity gene expression analysis and highly uniform transcript coverage.

  • Performance with libraries prepared from 2 pg or 10 pg of total HEK293 RNA or single cells, using the plexWell Rapid Single Cell RNA-Seq Library Prep Kit, SMART-Seq v4 Ultra Low Input RNA Kit (Takara Bio), or the Smart-seq2 method (Picelli S. (2019).



Application highlight: High-performance scRNA-Seq of PBMCs sensitive and efficient full-length transcriptome profiling of challenging samples


Single cell transcriptome profiling is now routinely employed in immunological studies, to better understand heterogeneity in cell populations with overlapping phenotypic markers; cell development and differentiation; hematopoietic pathways and regulatory networks that predict immune function. Single cell RNA-Seq of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) is particularly challenging because of ultra-low cellular RNA content (estimated at ≤1 pg per cell). In addition to a more streamlined workflow, the plexWellTM Rapid Single Cell RNA Library Prep Kit offers improved sensitivity (more genes detected; irrespective of sequencing depth); higher efficiency (less reads mapping to undesired content) and/or more uniform full-length transcript coverage as compared to homebrewed and commercially available reagents and protocols.

Resolution at Scale: plexWell Rapid Single cell for scRNA Sequencing

Advantages of plate-based, full-length transcriptome sequencing

  • Complements 3’ and 5’-only droplet-based methods by expanding on cell subpopulations of interest

  • Allows for more in-depth analyses, including allele-specific expression profiling, isoform detection, and SNP and variant profiling across full-length transcripts

  • Detects more transcripts per cell, including those of lower abundance

  • Utilizes FACS instruments for cell sorting and achieves higher cell capture efficiency

  • Requires far fewer cells for successful analysis

  • Enables long-term cell storage post-sorting
