Fast, Gentle and Easy Single Cell Isolation for Synthetic Biology

Synthetic biology enables scientists to design new sequences of DNA from scratch to engineer novel biological functions and systems within microorganisms. Identifying genetically engineered microorganisms can be challenging due to their scarcity in the larger population. The small size of these microorganisms can make isolating them even more challenging.

Re-Imagine Microorganism Isolation with Namocell

• Sort and dispense GFP Cells using Namocell’s Single Cell Dispenser

Microorganisms are transfected with the desired genetic information along with a fluorescent reporter gene, such as GFP. Individual GFP-positive cells are then identified and dispensed with Namocell’s Single Cell Dispenser, then cultured for downstream characterization.
