Great instrument, absolutely necessary for scRNAseq reliability and reproducibility
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Single cell RNA sequencing

"The Chromium from 10x Genomics is an instrument that greatly simplifies the workflow of scRNAseq. Regarding after sales care, 10x Genomics representatives are readily available. The cost of the instrument is great, considering the service it offers in the simplification of the complex and relatively new process of scRNAseq."

10X support team make things simple
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Single cell RNAseq

"10x Chromium is a very compact, space saving tabletop machine, which works great for NGS application to generate single-cell genomic libraries from any given cell from human, animal or plant tissue. Simple and straightforward protocol provides reproducible results. Leading single cell RNA seq provider. "

The result is reproducible. It's a good product.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Microfluidics platform to perform single cell partitioning and barcoding

"This product is effective and easy to use. The result is reproducible. The run time is about 20 min after the chip loading of about 15-30min. Just make sure to put glycerol in empty well on the chip, to avoid creating bubbles in the channels in the Controller. The maintenance is minimal and warranty plan is not expensive. The least about this Controller is occasionally there's clogging of chip that even though you already did what was suggested; luckily it doesn't happen often."

Works great but costs too much.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Single-cell tcr sequencing

"The 10x genomics single-cell TCR protocol is easy to use and rarely fails when loaded at proper cell number. The biggest failure is often caused by loading too many cell and clogging the fluidics. The biggest downside is the cost of reagents and no bulk order discount."

Their support team is marvelous and they respond quickly usually.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Single cell genome analysis

"10x Chromium is a tabletop machine used to generate single-cell genomic libraries from any given cell from human, animal or plant tissue. It has a straightforward protocol to achieve the outcome. It is a small space consuming instrument in the lab with growing applications. The single cell libraries are further read by NGS and the meanings are analyzed for significant findings. Their support team is marvelous and they respond quickly usually."

Great instrument with endless applications.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Single cell genome analysis

"10x Chromium is a tabletop machine used to generate single-cell genomic libraries from any given cell from human, animal or plant tissue. It has a straightforward protocol to achieve the outcome. It is a small space consuming instrument in the lab with growing applications. The single cell libraries are further read by NGS and the meanings are analyzed for significant findings. The processing price is expensive and we can run 8 samples at the same time and less than 8 samples lead to waste of utility. This is one of the biggest challenges for a potential technique with endless applications. Their support team is marvelous and they respond quickly usually."
