October 18, 2021 -- PerkinElmer and Honeycomb Biotechnologies have launched a new single-cell isolation and analysis tool called Hive scRNAseq.
Hive scRNAseq consists of a portable, handheld device that captures, stores, and prepares for RNA-Seq libraries a range of cell types, including granulocytes, nephrons, hepatocytes, and neurons, the two firms said. It allows users to collect samples from a variety of sites while protecting sample integrity during storage, shipping, and processing. Cells are loaded by gravity in volumes up to 4 mL.
PerkinElmer plans to feature Hive scRNAseq at the American Society of Human Genetics virtual meeting, which is being held October 18-22.
