Toiling in the lab

With a deadline on its way

To the scope I go

On a Saturday

I don’t see a clone

I’ve looked for one that’s right

What misery these data bring,

I’ll have to look all night,

Oh! Single cells, single cells, dilutions aren’t the way

Oh, I wish I had an AIR to pick a clone, to-da-ay!

Single cells, single cells, I need a better way

Use a Raft to grow a clone or be sad this holiday!

Use a Raft to grow a clone or be sad this holiday!

Now it’s getting late

My spirits are so low

My PI will hate

If my cells don’t grow

My eyesight’s getting dim

A clone I cannot see

My chances are so slim

I need CellRaft Cytometry

Oh! Single cells, single cells, sorters aren’t the way

Oh, I wish I had an AIR to pick a clone, to-da-ay!

Single cells, single cells, I need a better way

Use a Raft to grow a clone or be sad this holiday!

Use a Raft to grow a clone or be sad this holiday!

Oh! Single cells, single cells, dispensers aren’t the way

Oh, I wish I had an AIR to pick a clone, to-da-ay!

Single cells, single cells, I need a better way

Use a Raft to grow a clone or be sad this holiday!

Use a Raft to grow a clone or be sad this holiday!
