A few of our unique applications using On-chip Sort. We have users in various fields of research.
EXTENDING YOUR RESEARCH WITH ON-CHIP SORT
This microfluidic chip cell sorter has allowed users to do what they could not do before. Now you have a tool to make your brilliant ideas come to life!
The use of the disposable microfluidic chip as the core of On-chip Sort realizes great benefits over conventional cell sorters. Some of many advantages of On-chip Sort are listed below:
Comparison with conventional cell sorter
|Cell damage||Possibility of damage||Damage-free|
|Contamination||Microbial contamination may occur||Sterile and contamination-free|
|Sheath fluid||Fixed||Choose from a variety of media|
On-chip Biotechnologies currently offer two instruments: On-chip Sort (cell sorter) and On-chip SPiS (single cell dispenser)
Droplet selector and single droplet plater
“On-chip® Droplet Selector”
Cell/microorganism screening at 1,000 times higher throughput than conventional screening methods.
Microfluidic chip cell sorter
Revolutionary cell sorter using disposable microfluidic chip for damage-free and sterile sorting.
Single cell/particle dispenser
Accurate and gentle cell/particle dispenser for single cell/particle plating into 96- or 384-well plate.
Monodisperse droplet generator
“On-chip Droplet Generator”
Stable and uniform production of emulsion droplets. Using our unique microfluidic chip, stable and uniform droplets can be produced.
Jet-in-air or Cuvette hybrid cell sorters have multiple processes that triggers sorter-induced cellular stress (SICS). On-chip Sort allows for much gentler sorting of cells compared to conventional sorters because the use of microfluidic chip has eliminated such damaging steps.
|Conventional Sorter||On-chip Sort|
|Sorting Pressure||Approx. 40psi||Approx. 0.3psi|
|High-speed Collision||Cells collide at high-speed when collected||No collision|
|Electrostatic Charging||Cells are stressed due to charging||No electrostatic charging|
|Aerosol Generation||Potentially hazardous for users||No aerosols|
|Sorting Medium||Must use specified sorting medium||Most standard media accepted|
|Washing||Post-sort wash with harsh chemicals||No post-sort washing|
