The Chromium™ Genome Solution

Discover What You Have Been Missing

The Chromium Genome uses the power of Linked-Reads to fully resolve genic phasing, reveal structural variation and detect variants in previously inaccessible and complex regions of the genome.

The 10X Genome Solution Features:

  • Long-range information from a short-read Illumina® sequencer
  • High-quality libraries from as little as 1 ng of genomic DNA
  • Turn-key analysis pipeline and visualization tools
  • Call and phase major classes of structural variants (SVs) like deletions, inversions, and translocations, even in genes inaccessible to short-read sequencers
  • Phase SNVs, indels and SVs across >10 Mb haplotype blocks

Compact, sleek, efficient.

The compact, sleek Chromium™ Controller has been designed to rapidly and efficiently automate the equivalent of 100,000s to 1,000,000s of pipetting steps for highly parallel sample partitioning and molecular barcoding. The Chromium Controller allows a user to run any of our Chromium Single Cell 3′, Genome and Exome Solutions. A dedicated Chromium Single Cell Controller is also available for users that exclusively run our Chromium Single Cell 3′ Solution.


Chromium Genome v2 Library Kit & Gel Bead Kit

The Chromium Controller now supports our new Chromium Genome Reagent Kits with v2 chemistry, with the following refinements:

  • Chromium Genome Library Kit & Gel Bead Kit v2 comes in 16 and 96-reaction (HT) configurations, offering a flexible workflow that can be scaled based on the needs of each user
  • The Chromium Genome HT Library Kit & Gel Bead Kit v2 can be automated on industry standard liquid handlers and has a significant cost advantage per sample


  • Chromium Genome HT Library Kit & Gel Bead Kit v2, 96-reactions
  • Chromium Genome Library Kit & Gel Bead Kit v2, 16-reactions
  • Chromium Genome Chip Kit v2, 48-reactions

Purchase Separately:

  • Chromium i7 Multiplex Kit, 96-reactions
