Single Cell Dispensers

  • Dispense single cells into 96-well plate in 1 min or 384-well plate in 6 mins
  • Low pressure (<2 psi) preserves cell viability
  • Sort and dispense cells based on fluorescence or light scatter
  • Compatible with cell lines, primary cells, nuclei, bacteria, yeast and more
  • Starting sample can be as low as 100 cells
  • Isolate rare cell populations <0.1%
  • No clogging, no cross-contamination, zero maintenance

The Namocell Single Cell Dispensers make single cell isolation and sorting effortless. This benchtop instrument uses proprietary microfluidics technology that combines 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 and engineering, single cell genomics, iPSC and CRISPR cloning, monoclonal antibody development, synthetic biology, and rare cell isolation such as circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and circulating fetal cells. It is affordable, user-friendly, requires no special training to operate, and zero maintenance.
