Scipio Bioscience scRNAseq Webinar - Fresh-cell transcriptome, The ultimate Gold!

publication date: Feb 1, 2023
author/source: Thistle Scientific



Most single-cell technologies today require cells to be manipulated one way or another, either by being frozen, fixed, or physically squeezed into microchannels or nanowells. Those requirements compromise the transcriptome with the cell altering gene expression in response and drifting further away from the physiological conditions. But novel solutions such as Asteria™ now enable fresh cells to be processed to preserve their transcriptome and thus the accuracy of the single-cell data.

Join Dr. Nicolas Fernandez, Director of Innovation, and Dr. Barbara André, Director of Bioinformatics, for the first half of this webinar to learn the impact of single-cell preparation on the transcriptome of your cells and how it can be prevented with the intuitive Asteria™ pipeline for fresh cell samples.

In the second half, Prof. Bertrand Blondeau will showcase his research using Asteria™ on fresh pancreatic islets tissues towards the understanding of Type 1 diabetes and the development of therapeutic treatments.


During this webinar will be discussed:

  • Why processing fresh single-cell samples is better than fixed or frozen methods
  • How to process fresh single-cell samples immediately in your lab
  • Single-cell, single-tube, single-software: how to simplify your scRNA-seq experiments
  • The application on pancreatic cell sample towards the understanding of Type 1 diabetes
