Pala Single Cell Dispenser

Fast, Gentle and Easy Fluorescence and Light Scatter Based Single Cell Isolation

Fast – Dispense single cells into a 96-well plate in 1 min or a 384-well plate in 6 min, 3 min system initialization
Gentle – Low sorting pressure (<2 psi) preserves cell viability and integrity and delivers high outgrowth
Easy – Fully automated, no calibration needed, no clogging, zero maintenance
Compact – Lightweight and portable, easily fit inside a cell culture hood
Flexible – Can sort with aqueous or non-aqueous sheath liquids, such as water droplets in oil emulsion

The Pala Single Cell Dispenser makes single cell isolation and sorting effortless. It has 2 lasers and up to 11 fluorescent channels, and can isolate virtually every cell type.

This benchtop instrument combines proprietary microfluidics technology with flow cytometry and liquid dispensing to sort and dispense single cells directly into 96-well or 384-well plate. It simplifies and empowers a number of single cell applications, including cell line development, cell engineering, single cell genomics, CRISPR and iPSC cloning, monoclonal antibody development, synthetic biology, and rare cell isolation such as circulating tumor cells and circulating fetal cells. It is affordable, user-friendly, zero maintenance, and requires no special training to operate.
