SMARTer™ ICELL8® cx CellSelect® Software
The SMARTer ICELL8 cx Single-Cell System is an advanced, integrated automation platform that combines the power of imaging and dispensing for the isolation of single cells in 5,184-nanowell chips. The SMARTer ICELL8 cx system employs a large-bore nozzle dispenser for unbiased cell size isolation. Imaging allows the differentiation of single cells from multiple cells. Additionally, with the use of fluorescence, imaging can also be used for live/dead analysis in conjunction with the use of cellular dyes.
The full system also includes the SMARTer ICELL8 cx Thermal Cycler as well as built-in imaging capabilities and integrated SMARTer ICELL8 cx CellSelect Software that analyzes the images and provides the ability to proceed with only chosen wells, eliminating the noise from multiple-cell-containing wells or empty wells. This open-platform, high-throughput single-cell automation system is prevalidated for use with several SMARTer NGS applications, and also provides the flexibility to enable users to develop applications of their choice.
