How we can partner with you
Proof of Concept Projects
Explore New Possibilities Together
Picodroplet technology can be widely applied. If you have a novel workflow or are working with a challenging, unusual cell line our expert team is here to help. We partner with you to carry out short proof-of-concept projects to assess the feasibility of picodroplets for your application and give you the data you need to make sound investment decisions. Projects typically run for 2-3 months and provide the perfect way to push the boundaries and find out what our technology can do for your science.
Some examples include:
- Identifying and isolating antibiotic-resistant bacteria from very large populations
- Assays using split-GFP-based sensors in picodroplets
- Miniaturization of precision genome editing.
Custom Assay Design
We design. You save Time.
Do you have limited assay development resources for your Cyto-Mine® or Pico-Mine® screens or want to use your valuable time elsewhere? We’re here to help. Simply speak to our team who will design and test your assays to make sure they meet your needs before transferring reagents and protocols over to you.
Droplet Microfluidic Biochip Design
Can’t find the right biochip?
Our scientists are experts in developing custom biochips for use with microfluidic systems. This means we have many microfluidic biochips available to purchase including Pico-Gen™ and Pico-Sort™ Biochips. If you can’t find one that’s quite right for your application, we can design one for you. More than that, we design our biochips to be platform-agnostic, so they work effectively with both our platforms and other systems. Let us know what you need – we’ll get you sorted.
Droplet Microfluidics Chemicals
Picodroplet-related Chemicals - Created for You
We develop and manufacture a range of surfactants and other chemicals used in picodroplet workflows to enable the more effective use of microfluidic devices for research applications. Our research and manufacturing chemists are highly skilled and experienced in surfactant and other chemical production for use in applications such as single cell isolation, single cell analysis, cell growth studies, and mass spectrometry, where our picodroplet technology is used. If you need something custom for your projects they’d be happy to share their expertise and create the right picodroplet chemicals and solutions for your needs.

Hear from some of our customers!
"Rather than simply automating the existing Cell Line Development workflow- unchanged for many years, perhaps now is the time to rethink and overhaul manual, labor-intensive steps by the reconstruction and optimization of the workflow to make it more automated. You can achieve this streamlined optimization by using instruments such as Cyto-Mine®. The latter automates cell isolation, titer determination, and clonality assurance providing a robust one-step cloning strategy. In doing so, the fully-integrated platform enables productivity assessment to be done earlier and more quickly, with less effort. Cyto-Mine® also eliminates the need for two rounds of limiting dilution cloning, greatly saving time and resources required to demonstrate monoclonality."
Dr Jon Dempsey
CEO and Founding Partner of Pathway Biopharma
“We determined that Cyto-Mine® can generate cell lines with high productivity and a strong assurance of monoclonality after a single round of screening without compromising product quality.”

“I used this biomolecule-compatible fluorinated surfactant to prevent the coalescence of droplets in microfluidic channels. Pico-Surf™ solved my problem immediately and went beyond expectations. Pico-Surf™ is reliable and effortless to use - it works like magic from the first use.”
Carnegie Mellon University Department of Chemical Engineering, USA
“The Pico-Mine™ removes the barrier of working with microfluidics. There is no need for microfluidic system development or optimization, the Pico-Mine™ works straight away allowing the researchers to focus on biology assays.”
"I have been using Pico-Surf™ for generating microdroplets and microgels. The surfactants worked very well in terms of droplet generation and the resultant droplet stability and monodispersity. Moreover, I’ve been using microgels for cell studies and clearly, the surfactants won’t impair cell viability. Therefore, I highly recommend this product for research in droplet microfluidics."
