Compact, sleek, efficient.
The compact, sleek Chromium Controller rapidly and efficiently combines large partition numbers with a massively diverse barcode library to generate >100,000 barcode-containing partitions in a matter of minutes. The Chromium Controller fits on a standard laboratory bench and allows a user to run any Chromium Solution, from genome to single cell analysis.
Advanced microfluidics platform enables
high-throughput analysis. Each single use chip
processes up to 8 samples in parallel in less
than 20 minutes.
Small footprint instrument
Easily fits into existing laboratory infrastructure.
Instrument footprint <1 square foot can be placed
on standard lab bench.

Massive Partitioning and Barcoding
Encapsulate your sample into hundreds to tens of thousands of uniquely addressable partitions in minutes, each containing an identifying barcode for downstream analysis.
Each Gel Bead, infused with millions of unique oligonucleotide sequences, is mixed with a sample, which can be high molecular weight (HMW) DNA, individual cells, cells labeled using Feature Barcoding technology, nuclei, nuclei treated with transposase, or Cell Beads (see page 6). Gel Beads and samples are then added to an oil-surfactant solution to create Gel Beads-inemulsion (GEMs), which act as individual reaction vesicles in which the Gel Beads are dissolved and the sample is barcoded (Figure 1).
