Blog: Richard Fekete, Ph.D. Discusses Single Cell Analysis in an Insightful Webinar

Free single cell analysis webinar

Single Cell Analysis with Cells-to-CT Kit - We all know that tissues are composed of heterogeneous mixtures of cells. But what does that mean when we take gene expression measurements from homogenized samples? Are we accurately accounting for the small but critical changes occurring in individual cells? Single-cell analysis can be critical in applications such as candidate drug screening, cell differentiation and stem cell studies, and measuring individual cell responses to specific stimuli. Learn more about single cell analysis in this blog post and in our free webinar recently released.Read More
