We will highlight several applications of fully supported workflows with BD Life Sciences - Biosciences and Illumina that can take you from single cell suspensions to final analyzed data and confirmatory experiments to better understand the human immune system and its role in important biological functions. Multi-omic analysis using the BD Rhapsody™ Single-Cell Analysis System, oligo linked AbSeq antibodies and Illumina Sequencing platforms allowed the discovery of new biomarkers in rare immune cell types leading to high content flow cytometry characterization experiments. We will cover experimental considerations and examples to understand how to use the flexibility of sample tagging to fit different experimental mixtures of sample and cell numbers across various sequencing platforms.
