BD Rhapsody and Genomic Cytometry

Combining two powerful technologies to produce powerful data

Working in collaboration with BD and international partner labs, Newcastle FCCF staff have played an important role in bringing the BD Rhapsody system into functional use. 

The Rhapsody system uses a cell cartridge and abSeq, a nucleotide-tagged antibody system, to combine labelling of over 40 cellular markers with analysis of a single cell RNA library.    

"The BD Rhapsody Single-Cell Analysis System enables digital quantitation of hundreds of expressed genes across tens of thousands of single cells, provides customized assays that are flexible enough to meet any experimental need, and comprises an efficient system that reduces experimentation time and sequencing costs." - BD Rhapsody Single Cell Analysis System Brochure
