Sample multiplexing and super-loading on single cell RNA-sequencing platforms.

Cell Hashing uses a series of oligo-tagged antibodies against ubiquitously expressed surface proteins with different barcodes to uniquely label cells from distinct samples, which can be subsequently pooled in one scRNA-seq run. By sequencing these tags alongside the cellular transcriptome, we can assign each cell to its sample of origin, and robustly identify doublets originating from multiple samples.
