Built on picodroplet technology
At the heart of our platforms are picodroplets – picolitre-volume aqueous droplets in a carrier oil. Each droplet acts as a tiny separate test tube. Cells are encapsulated in droplets with the assay reagents and passed through microfluidics for sorting and dispensing. Miniaturized, high-speed and fully automated to streamline your application.
Understanding your cells
Assessing cell-cell interactions
Picodroplets provide a unique method to assess cell-cell interactions at the individual cell level. We co-encapsulate one each of two cell types in a single droplet along with reagents to measure the results of the interaction. Thus, you can identify the specific engineered therapeutic cells best interacting with the target cells.
Gentle handling of high-value material
Picodroplets provide a protective environment for cells. By encapsulating cells in droplets, they are protected from high shear stresses during movement – so you can work fast at high throughputs. With high rates of gas exchange and minimal small-molecule leakage, your cells remain in first-class condition. Picodroplets are proven on primary T-cells, B-cells, and neuronal cells.
