Question: Are the components from Single Cell 3' v2, v3, and v3.1 kits cross-compatible?
Answer: No, components between Single Cell 3' v2, v3, and v3.1 kits are not cross-compatible. Customers should not mix reagents or chips between the different chemistry versions. Key improvements were made in the new Single Cell 3' v3 reagents and chips to enhance performance, and therefore make the chemistry and microfluidics incompatible. Single Cell 3' v3.1 reagents run on new chip architecture, making them incompatible with other reagent kits.
Misuse of reagents and chips will increase the risk of sample failure and in the most extreme cases, will also damage the instrument.
