Technical Note - Guidelines for Accurate Target Cell Counts Using 10x Genomics® Single Cell Solutions

This Technical Note presents an overview of best practices for cell handling and counting that will increase the accuracy of cell counts and minimize the variability in the number of loaded cells. 10x Genomics Single Cell Protocols require suspensions of viable, single cells as input. Accurate counting and qualification of cells during the workflow of the Single Cell 3’ v2 and Single Cell V(D)J Protocol is essential to determine the number of cells to load on to the microfluidic chip for analysis on the system. While manual (e.g. hemocytometer) and automated (e.g. Countess II Automated Cell Counter) counting methods can be used to report cell concentrations, additional factors should be considered that can affect the final count.
