Single Cell Immune Profiling Services
Creative Biolabs provides a comprehensive range of customized, high-quality services in single cell immune profiling to support sciences research in immunology and related biomedical industries worldwide, with proven experience and expertise to help researchers explore the incredible diversity of the innate and adaptive immune system.
The immune repertoire is defined as the sum of T cell receptors (TCR) and B cell receptors (BCR) that make the organism's adaptive immune system (Liu, 2018). In the vertebrate immune system, the diversity of T and B cells in terms of receptor sequences is enormous, providing comprehensive protection against a wide range of diseases. Due to the random combinations of germline gene segments and by random addition or deletion at the junction site of the segments, resulting in extremely rich diversity of BCR and TCR gene sequences. These diverse collections of sequences are also called immune repertoires.
Our Single Cell Immune Profiling Services
We offer scientific and meticulous design for cell suspension, library construction, sequencing, and data analysis to ensure high-quality research results. For single cell immune profiling services, we offer TCR immune profiling service and BCR immune profiling service. BCR immune profiling service can be applied in single cell-based antibody discovery to facilitate the paired variable heavy and light chain sequencing.

Features & Benefits
- High throughput
- High resolution
- More comprehensive information
- Single cell expression
- One-stop service
Transcriptome and immunome data of 500-10,000 cells can be obtained simultaneously for one sample; for high throughput platform, we can run 8 samples (20,000 cells for one sample) in one experiment.
The immune repertoire information can be obtained at a single-cell level.
We can get the full-length sequence of V(D)J and sequence information on paired alpha and beta chains of TCR and the paired heavy and light chains of BCR in individual cells.
Cell-matched immune repertoire (TCR/BCR) information and 5' gene expression can be determined simultaneously.
We can provide one-stop service from sample processing to data visualization, or provide customized analysis procedures with the most up-to-date technical solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q1. What are the advantages of single-cell immune profiling?
Fig.8 Advantages of single cell immune profiling. (Creative Biolabs)
Q2. What are the differences between the two chains of TCR and BCR? Which chain is recommended?
The TCR beta chain and BCR heavy chain are encoded by V, D, and J genes, while the TCR alpha chain and BCR light chain are encoded by V, J genes. According to the published articles, there are many studies on TCR beta chain and BCR heavy chain.
