How are miniature single-cell chambers made?

Our miniature cell chambers form the core of our automated single-cell isolation and automated single-cell cloning solutions.  The single-cell chambers are made of an aqueous phase, such as cell medium or stem cell coatings, and separated and overlaid by an immiscible oil phase. They are ideally suited to gently isolate individual cells as well as culturing single cells into clonal cultures.    

With their small size, exceptional optical clarity, and lack of edge effects, the GRID chambers enable highly reliable in-chamber verification of monoclonality immediately after plating. In addition, their minimal volume requirements greatly help to reduce the use of costly reagents.
