Single-cell technologies are becoming increasingly widespread and have been revolutionizing our understanding of cell identity, state, diversity and function. However, current platforms can be slow to apply to large-scale studies and resource-limited clinical arenas due to a variety of reasons including cost, infrastructure, sample quality and requirements. Here we report DNBelab C4 (C4), a negative pressure orchestrated, portable and cost-effective device that enables high-throughput single-cell transcriptional profiling. C4 system can efficiently allow discrimination of species-specific cells at high resolution and dissect tissue heterogeneity in different organs, such as murine lung and cerebral cortex. Finally, we show that the C4 system is comparable to existing platforms but has huge benefits in cost and portability and, as such, it will be of great interest for the wider scientific community.
