Single Cell Biology

Overview of Services

The Single Cell Biology Laboratory (SCBL) is a multidisciplinary, research-driven core service at The Jackson Laboratory specializing in technologies to study cell and tissue biology at single-cell resolution.  Located in Farmington, CT, and Bar Harbor, ME, our services are available to JAX and UConn researchers through the JAX-UConn Shared Single Cell Genomics facility.


The SCBL strives to develop, validate, and make state-of-the-art single-cell and spatial technologies available to the JAX and UConn research community.  Our staff is highly experienced in single-cell isolation and tissue dissociation, cell capture, enrichment and isolation, molecular characterization, and the computational analysis of single-cell data sets.  As many of these technologies are dissociative, we employ a number of complementary spatial and in situ assays to interrogate cellular biology in its native microenvironment.  Moreover, to investigate the effects of perturbation on biological systems, we have established expertise in cellular model development---2D/3D cell lines, organoids, microtissues---and have developed a high-content cellular screening platform for high throughput imaging and biochemical characterization of models of interest.
