Chromium X, a next-generation single-cell platform launched in July that enables cost-effective high-throughput experiments, is the latest innovation in the company’s leading portfolio of instruments, consumables and software to help researchers accelerate the mastery of biology. Other 10x products to earn this recognition include:

  • Chromium Controller (2017)The product that began the company’s five-year streak, the Chromium Controller uses advanced microfluidics to enable integrated analysis of single cells at high resolution and large scale.

  • Single Cell Immune Profiling (2018) – This product enables researchers to study the body’s adaptive immune response to different types of infections and identify the specific cell types that respond to immune system activation.

  • Chromium Single Cell ATAC (Assay for Transposase Accessible Chromatin) (2019) – This product scaled the throughput of single-cell ATAC sequencing from a few hundred processed manually to thousands or tens of thousands of cells per run.

  • Visium Spatial Gene Expression Solution (2020) – Built on the technology and expertise from 10x’s acquisition of Spatial Transcriptomics, the Visium Spatial Gene Expression Solution advanced the field of spatial analysis by revealing exactly where in a tissue sample that gene expression is taking place.

  • Chromium Single Cell Multiome ATAC + Gene Expression (2020) – Following the success of the Single Cell ATAC product, this product enables researchers to harvest both epigenetic and gene expression data from individual nuclei.

The award-winning products are a testament to the company’s multidisciplinary expertise and robust R&D pipeline. To date, the company has invested more than $1 billion in R&D, launched more than 20 pioneering products, and built a portfolio of more than 1,200 issued patents and patent applications.
