Single cell distribution in a few minutes
Distribution of alive single cells in the individual wells of the microwell chip, is easily achieved with the Pump-unit in combination with the single cell disposable. The chip is pre-mounted in the slide of the single cell disposable and contains 6400 microwells. It takes 5 to 10 minutes to distribute single cells from a cell suspension of 1 ml across the individual wells.
Easy control of pressure
The Pump-unit creates a negative pressure at the waste side of the disposable. The system has an adjustable pressure from 0 – 500 mbar. The pressure is displayed at the front-side. Different cell suspensions may require different pressure settings. For viable cells the pressure is typically only 10-20mbar. Fixed cells require typically 100-200mbar.
The waste container can hold up to 40ml of fluid. This is also the maximum amount of liquid which can be processed at once. The system is compatible with all kind of cells suspensions and cells that are enriched and harvested by the Parsortix, Clearbridge Biomedics device or the CellSearch Autoprep system.
