On-chip Sort: The world’s first Cell Sorter using disposable microfluidic chips for damage-free sorting.
On-chip Biotechnologies has developed cell sorters based on microfluidic chip technology to gently sort even the most delicate cells damage-free. Because all fluids stay contained in the sterile disposable chips, there is zero chance of cross contamination and no instrument cleanup.
A conventional cell sorter gives damage to separated cells as electric charge and collision. Moreover, It is impossible to perform selection of sheath liquid and sorting of the cell by various culture medium in conventional sorting. In addition, since a flow system is nonexchangeable, cross contamination of a sample arises in conventional sorting. We developed a cell sorting system which adopted microfluidic technology on disposable chips, enabling it to separate precious samples without any damage-free.
We introduce about applications which show advantages of the equipment.
