Efficient single-cell isolation
isoPick versus manual limiting dilution
Manually isolating single cells using “limiting dilution” is tedious and inefficient. Even under ideal plating conditions, the vast majority of wells do not receive a single cell. Single-cell containing wells are randomly distributed across the plate and locating and verifying them is extremely tedious and unreliable.
The isoPick transfers verified single cells from ultra-low volume culture chambers (GRIDs) automatically into 96-well plates (and other formats – see below).
This approach provides a highly efficient and hands-off single-cell isolation process. The picking and transfer process is very gentle to cells and maintains highest cell viability throughout the entire workflow.
Flexible transfer of single cells
... into different downstream formats for your single-cell assays
The Picking Platform gently isolates and transfers your single cells flexibly into different downstream formats and volumes, compatible with various assays. This includes 96 well-plates for cell culture and PCR, small collection tubes, such as 8-strip PCR tubes, as well as glass vials compatible with mass-spec workflows.
