Single Cell Dispensers

  • Dispense single cells into 96-well plate in 1 minute or 384-well plate in 6 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Start with as few as 100 cells as starting sample for single cell isolation.
  • Isolate rare cell populations <0.1%

The Namocell Single Cell Dispensers make single cell isolation and sorting effortless. These benchtop devices use proprietary microfluidics technology 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, single cell genomics, monoclonal antibody development, CRISPR selection, synthetic biology, circulating tumor cells (CTCs) isolation and circulating fetal cells isolation. It is affordable, user-friendly, and requires almost no training to operate. Please meet Namo and Hana.
