Single-cell and spatial analysis are cutting-edge techniques in biology and biotechnology that allow researchers to investigate biological systems at unprecedented resolution and detail.

By integrating single-cell and spatial analysis approaches, researchers can gain comprehensive insights into the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying biological processes, identify spatially defined biomarkers, and uncover novel therapeutic targets for a wide range of applications, including cancer research, immunology, neuroscience, and regenerative medicine.

Decode Science works closely with the MGI STOmics and Parse teams and can assist research groups to implement these techniques within their labs – from automation and sequencers, spatial transcriptomics, quality control and more.

At Decode Science, we pride ourselves on the level of flexibility, customisation, and collaboration we bring when working together to come up with a solution that improves outcomes for you and your research cohorts.

High-efficiency guide RNAs for knockouts and knock-ins.
CRISPR experts agree that using synthetic single guide RNAs (sgRNAs) for genome engineering generate more efficient and consistent editing results than any other type of guide RNAs.
Synthego sgRNAs are highly pure guides that deliver indel frequencies of up to 99%, making it easy to efficiently conduct knockout or knock-ins in virtually any cell type. Their sgRNAs can be ordered with site-specific chemical modifications that provide greater stability and decreased activation of the cellular innate immune response.

Single-cell Analysis

This approach involves studying individual cells rather than bulk populations, providing insights into cellular heterogeneity, cell-to-cell variability, and rare cell populations within tissues.

Single-cell analysis techniques include single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq), which measures gene expression in individual cells, as well as single-cell genomics, epigenomics, and proteomics methods. These techniques enable researchers to characterize cell types, identify cell states, uncover regulatory networks, and understand cellular dynamics in development, disease, and tissue homeostasis.

Spatial Analysis

Spatial analysis techniques capture the spatial organisation and interactions of molecules, cells, and tissues within their native context. Spatial transcriptomics, for example, combines high-resolution imaging with gene expression profiling to map the spatial distribution of RNA molecules within tissue sections. Other spatial profiling methods include spatial proteomics, spatial genomics, and spatial metabolomics, which provide spatially resolved molecular information at various scales, from subcellular compartments to entire tissues. These approaches enable researchers to study complex biological processes, such as cell-cell communication, tissue architecture, and microenvironmental interactions, in health and disease.


STOmics stands at the forefront of advancing spatially-resolved transcriptomic analysis through its revolutionary SpaTial Enhanced REsolution Omics-Sequencing (Stereo-seq) technology. Leveraging proprietary Stereo-seq technology, which is built on DNA Nanoball (DNB) technology, researchers gain access to a groundbreaking tool for exploring spatial biology with unparalleled field-of-view and resolution.
