Researchers conducting genome editing with delicate cell types know it can take months to produce stable clonal colonies, with most organizations indicating a two- to three-month turnaround time — even for robust cells.

Cell Microsystem’s CellRaft AIR™ System offers a workflow that requires approximately four to five days to generate stable clonal colonies that are up to 90 percent viable and verified for clonality via imaging-based tracking.

Scientists at Cell Microsystems have developed data and protocols to position the CellRaft AIR™ System as a fully automated cloning platform, providing evidence of a nearly three-fold improvement in cell viability using relatively robust HEK293 cells.
