Single cell analysis is the study of genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics and metabolomics at the single cell level. Due to the heterogeneity of the different cell types, the analysis of a single cell enables the discovery of e.g. mechanisms and cell functions. This requires the separation of the individual cells. Single cell research can be used to study diseases and drug development. Potential areas of application are also in the therapeutic field, e.g. in cancer therapy to test drugs in advance on isolated cancer cells from the patient before they are treated with them.
