Single Cell Protocols - Cell Preparation Guide

Demonstrated Protocol, Last Modified on March 31, 2021, Permalink


This Cell Preparation Guide describes best practices and general protocols for washing, counting and concentrating cells from both abundant and limited cell suspensions (greater than or less than 100000 total cells, respectively) in preparation for use in 10x Genomics Single Cell Protocols.

This demonstrated protocol is optimized for counting cells in the range of 700-1200 cells/µl. If using the Single Cell 3' LT v3.1 (low throughput) application, ensure cells are counted as indicated in this protocol and then diluted to the LT specific optimal loading concentration of 100-600 cells/µl using the Cell Dilution Overview in the LT User Guide.
