What are barcoded antibodies?

Antibody barcoding – an important step in evaluating gene expression and protein levels simultaneously.

Recently developed techniques such as CITE-seq, REAP-seq and Cell hashing, are becoming increasingly popular for exploring single-cell multi-omic approaches. By combining barcoded antibodies with scRNA-seq platforms (i.e.10x Genomics Chromium, BD Rhapsody™ Single-Cell Analysis System, Fluidigm C1, Drop-seq, Clontech iCell8 and ddSEQ™ ) we are now able to correlate transcriptomics data with the actual protein expression in a single cell.

However, one of the biggest challenges with these techniques is how to efficiently conjugate oligonucleotides to antibodies

With Lightning-Link® antibody barcoding kits you can conjugate your preferred antibody to the pre-activated oligo mix with just 30 seconds hands-on time. This will enable you to explore more parameters at a single-cell level while not being limited by commercially available antibody-oligo conjugates.
