More Information Per Cell
Providing more efficient single cell workflows, including clonal colony propagation, by combining imaging, sorting and isolating in one instrument with no minimum sample size requirement.
Know the quality of your cells and choose the best ones to isolate.
Simple, hands-free, and effective for:
- Tracking cell phenotypes
- Data rich time course imaging
- Small, precious, or fragile samples
- Challenging genomic and CRISPR workflows
- On-array functional assays
A Simple Workflow
Cells are plated on the CytoSort Array similarly to a standard tissue culture dish and loaded into the AIR System’s platform.
Using the AIR System’s three-channel fluorescence plus brightfield microscope, cells are imaged and sorted through user navigation or via user-defined thresholds, filtering, and gating.
Once selected, each cell is transferred to a standard 96-well PCR or culture plate, and is ready for downstream analysis.
