Cell sorting has been utilized in various scientific disciplines, such as life sciences, regenerative medicine, immunology, and drug discovery. Cell sorters capable of analyzing and sorting certain cell types have been commercially available since the early 1970s. Since then, many cell sorters have been developed, but these sorters cause cell damage during the sorting process, have an issue of cross-contamination, and are not able to sort cells in sterile conditions. On-chip Biotechnologies Co., Ltd., has solved this challenge using On-chip Sort; our disposable microfluidic chip-based sorter.
This sorter not only resolved the inherent issues of the conventional sorters, but also enabled analysis/sorting of cells suspended in culture medium and emulsion droplets suspended in oil.
On-chip Droplet Generator that allows for simple and monodisperse emulsion production was also released in April 2015.
On-chip SPiS for dispensing of single or specified number of cells or emulsion droplets into wells of multi titer plate will also be released soon.
