C1The CGIBD’s Advanced Analytics (AA) Core provides high-quality, quantitative solutions for studying proteins and nucleic acids at the bulk or single-cell level.

The AA Core also offers high-throughput real-time qPCR service on its Fluidigm BioMark HD system, allowing users to simultaneously measure as many as 96 samples for up to 96 genes from cDNA generated from conventional bulk cell preparations, or single-cells when using the Fluidigm C1 single-cell auto prep system.
Two platforms are available for single-cell RNAseq. The Fluidigm C1 generates RNAseq libraries from ~800 cells, and the Biorad/Illumina ddSEQ can generate RNAseq libraries from ~1,600 cells. Single-cell DNAseq is also available upon request. The AA Core provides turn key service for RNAseq services – you bring us cells, we give you fully process and normalized data files. Additional data analysis services are available upon request.

The immunotechnologies (IT) component provides consultation, ordering, and immunoassay services, and supports a wide variety of analytes in both traditional ELISA/EIA and xMAP-based multiplex bead assay formats.

Whether measuring gene expression or cytokines, the AA core’s favorable pricing and unique cost-sharing model allow investigators access to a wide variety of assays and an extensive probe library for a fraction of their list price.
