Detect and Analyse Rare Cells
1) Cell culture in a Petri dish or multiwell plate is scanned on a microscope to gain a mosaic image. 2) Images of a large number of cells are analyzed by software to recognize rare target cells. 3-4) Selected rare cells are picked and deposited by the micropipette into PCR tubes. 5) Genom and/or transcriptome analysis of rare cells.
Excellent imaging based detection combined with outstanding precision makes the Piezo Head Technology perfect for the analysis of rare cells. The sorting process leaves the cells viable, and workflows are also compatible with RNA and DNA analysis.
Excellent liquid handling precision: 0.1 nanoliter, with an Outstanding >90% single cell isolation efficiency
High Quality Imaging
Both unlabeled and fluorescent cells can be imaged by high resolution objectives. Sort cells labeled by fluorescent markers or having the desired morphology using computer vision
The number of cells picked in a single run can range from 1 to 1,000
