TCR Repertoire Sequencing 

A snapshot of the TCR Repertoire with accurate and quantitative sequencing  

Diversity in the variable region of T cell receptors (TCRs) enables T cells to recognize different molecules. Its ability to detect foreign molecules comes from the recombination of V(D)J gene segments by incorporating random nucleotide insertions and deletions, and therefore plays a key role in the sophisticated adaptive immunity system. 

Next-generation sequencing of the TCR repertoire is a powerful tool that creates a snapshot of all types of TCR recombination in a specific microenvironment. They are useful for predicting disease outcome, monitoring response to therapies as well as discovering new prognostic and diagnostic biomarkers. 

Our assay utilizes a single reaction of bias-controlled multiplex PCR approach, followed by high-throughput sequencing to provide accurate and quantitative sequences of the human TCR repertoire. We also offer comprehensive bioinformatics analyses of TCR diversity, clonality, V/J/VJ usage and CDR3 functionality. 

SAMPLE TYPES

Single-cell transcriptome sequencing  

A high-resolution view of cellular diversity at the single cell level 

Compared to traditional RNA sequencing from bulk cells, single-cell transcriptome sequencing utilizes advanced barcoding and NGS technology to analyze gene expression information from individual cells and provides a high-resolution view an individual cell’s function in the context of its microenvironment. It has been increasingly used in a variety of research directions: 

  • Reveals cellular level heterogeneity 
  • Identifies and characterizes rare cell populations  
  • Studies gene expression and co-expression patterns in individual cells 
  • Dissects developmental cell lineages and molecular changes during development and differentiation processes 
  • Discovers novel biomarkers for specific cell populations 
PLATFORMS
  • 10x Genomics Chromium System for cell partition and library preparation 
  • Illumina NGS platform for sequencing 
SAMPLE TYPES

Isolated cells from cell lines or fresh tissue
