Question: Is MULTI-Seq the same as the 3’ CellPlex kit for Cell Multiplexing?
Answer: The MULTI-Seq method is a lipid-based cell multiplexing protocol developed by McGinnis et al. 2019. 10x Genomics Feature Barcode technology for Cell Multiplexing is a method that was developed independently by 10x Genomics and also incorporates lipid-based cell multiplexing. We cannot comment on any specific similarities or differences between MULTI-Seq and the 10x Genomics assay. The type of lipid and the buffer formulation in the 10x Genomics 3’ CellPlex kit is proprietary.
