Individually hashed samples were counted using a hemocytometer and pooled in equal ratio at high concentration. Pooled sample was strained through a 70 µm cell strainer and counted again using a hemocytometer. To achieve approximately 20,000 cells after doublet removal, cell concentration was adjusted to 1314 cells/µL to achieve the target of 41,645 cells in 31.7 µL for super-loading of the 10X Chromium Chip A. Gene expression (using 5′ v1 chemistry; 10X Genomics) and ADT and hashtag-oligo (HTO) libraries were constructed using reagents, primers, and protocol from the published ECCITE-seq protocol (Mimitou et al., 2019). All libraries from the titration run were sequenced together with other samples on an Illumina NovaSeq6000 S1 flow cell. The post-titration (adjusted) sample (using 5′ v1.1 chemistry; 10X Genomics) was multiplexed and sequenced together with other samples not included in this study on Illumina NovaSeq6000 SP and S1 flow cells.

Thank you for your interest in our manuscript. The super-loading of 10X chromium concept is published in the original hashing manuscript ( as well as the original ECCITE-seq manuscript ( In short, it is simply loading more cells than recommended by the manufacturer. This increases the amount of doublets, but due to sample multiplexing in the hashing and ECCITE-seq protocols, many of these doublets can be identified and removed in silico (but are still sequenced).
