Dolomite Bio’s RNAdia 2.0 reagent kit for single cell research has been launched as part of its complete workflow, encompassing everything from sample preparation to bioinformatic analysis.
RNAdia 2.0 is designed to be used with the Nadia Instrument, an automated, microfluidic droplet-based platform for single cell research that encapsulates up to eight samples, in parallel, in less than 20 mins. Single use cartridges avoid cross contamination and gentle cell stirring offers the benefit of ultra-low cell doublet rates to ensure high quality results.
Using the Nadia Instrument, researchers can prepare samples, process cells of up to 50 µm, construct and sequence single cell libraries, which are compatible with standard NGS short-read sequencing on Illumina sequencers. Data analysis is available for purchase alongside the RNAdia 2.0 kit bundles.
As part of the launch, Dolomite Bio is also releasing Droplet Analyzer Software, a free online tool for the detection and analysis of droplets generated using microfluidic technology. Originally produced for the in-house research and development team, the time saving impact of the software was so significant that it was decided to release it.
Technical Applications Specialist, Thomas Osborne, said: “Our focus has always been on ease of use for the user, so that they can focus on doing what’s important. This is why we’ve really thought about each stage of the workflow and how it can support their research.
“With the release of this easy-to-use reagent kit and the free droplet analysis software, Dolomite Bio has created a cost-effective workflow that includes the option of using their in-house bioinformatics expertise.” For more information about the RNAdia kit go to https://www.dolomite-bio.com/rnadia-kit-launch/
