Cell Ranger 4.0 (latest), printed on 03/29/2020
Loupe Browser is a desktop application that provides interactive visualization functionality to analyze data from different 10x Genomics solutions. Loupe Browser allows you to easily interrogate different views of your 10x data to quickly gain insights into the underlying biology. Loupe is named for a jeweler's loupe, which is used to magnify and inspect the details of precious gemstones.
Note: As of the 4.0 release, Loupe Cell Browser was renamed to Loupe Browser. All Loupe Cell Browser functionality is maintained in Loupe Browser.
Loupe Browser supports the analysis of the following types of data:
To use Loupe Browser, open any .cloupe file generated by the Cell Ranger analysis software. The Cell Ranger .cloupe file is embedded with the following information:
Once your data is in Loupe Browser, you can rapidly explore and gain insights from the data without the need to do any programming.
Loupe Browser provides many powerful analysis capabilities. To learn how to use Loupe Browser to analyze your gene expression data, review the following tutorials.
Loupe Browser is built to accelerate the following applications:
Finding Significant Genes
Determine genes that uniquely characterize clusters at the press of a button.
Identifying Cell Types
Use gene lists and the gene expression view to locate different cell types and functional groups.
Create custom clusters and use differential expression tools to identify even smaller subgroups in your data.
Exploring Cell Subtypes
Use the filter panel to create complex boolean filters to find cell subtypes in your dataset.
Integrated Gene Expression and V(D)J Analysis
Combine gene expression and immune repertoire data from the same sample to gain new insights about complex disease.
Save genes of interest, export data tables, and capture screenshots of your single-cell data.
