Microscope Accessory

CellRaft System for Inverted Microscopes

For scientists who do not have access to an CellRaft AIR® system, we offer an approach to use the CytoSort® Array manually.

We developed an accessory device that can fit a standard inverted microscope. Users can use the microscope to view their cells on the arrays, manually release individual CellRafts and manually collect/deposit those CellRafts into standard multiwell plates or PCR tubes.

 

Accessory Device for Inverted Microscopes

The accessory device is designed to fit a range of microscope models with differing objective diameters.  After fitting over the objective, the device is connected to a control unit. With the push of a button, the user actuates a needle to release an individual CellRaft from the CytoSort Array.
