Technology

Dispense single cells into 96-well plate in 1 min, or 384-well plate in 6 min.

Process up to 3 million cells in 1 min.

Namocell Single Cell Dispensers combine the benefits of three key technologies, microfluidics, flow cytometry and liquid dispensing to accomplish single cell sorting and dispensing in one step, providing a fast, easy and gentle solution for single cell isolation. They are capable of isolating single cells in a high throughput manner while being gentle on cells to preserve cell viability and deliver good outgrowth. They are easy to operate, zero maintenance, and require no prior experience with flow cytometry.

Namocell’s proprietary microfluidic cell cartridges eliminate the risk of system clogging and sample-to-sample cross contamination, and keep the sample sterile with no need for cleaning.
