The Chromium System is powered by 10x GemCode Technology

The 10x GemCode Technology fuels our Chromium System with an innovative reagent delivery system, set of algorithms and turn-key software analysis tools that enable the discovery of previously inaccessible genetic information at massive rate and scale.

The GemCode Technology creates a unique reagent delivery system that partitions cells or arbitrarily long DNA molecules (including 100 kb) and prepares sequencing libraries in parallel such that all fragments produced within a partition share a common barcode.

A simple workflow combines large partition numbers with a massively diverse barcode library to generate 100,000 barcode containing partitions in a matter of minutes. It is a fully integrated solution for RNA and DNA analysis.
