Full Instrument - QuickPick

  • High throughput single cell sorting directly from the Petri dish

  • One single cell arrives to each PCR tube

  • 10 PCR strips containing 80 tubes can be filled in a cycle

  • Glass cover slip for testing single cell deposition in situ

  • Drop volume less than 1 ul for adherent cells

  • Pick up volume of ~1 nl for suspended cells

  • 15-20 seconds per cell. When collecting multiple cells, sorting speed is 1 cell/second.

  • Number of cells picked up in a single run: 1-1000.

  • Isolates a subpopulation of live adherent cells expressing fluorescent or luminescent markers

  • Both unlabeled and fluorescentcells are recognized by computer vision

  • Viable cells after sorting

  • Any adherent and non-adherent cell type can be sorted

  • Cell culture needs minimal preparation before sorting

  • Average sorting process takes only a few minutes

  • Multichannel detection using the fluorescent filter setup of the microscope
