LevitasBio LeviPrep, LeviSelect

LevitasBio has launched the LeviPrep and LeviSelect product lines for tissue dissociation and cell selection. The products are designed to work with the LeviCell system to process human and mouse tissue and cell samples. LeviPrep products help with creating single-cell suspensions from primary tissues samples while maintaining native cellular states, minimizing cell death, and preventing changes in sample phenotype. They come with optimized protocols for samples like brain, liver, and lung tissues. LeviSelect products can enrich for target cells by modifying their native levitation profiles with antibody-conjugated particles of different density or magnetism. Target selection happens in parallel with label-free enrichment of viable cells. Initial LeviPrep and LeviSelect products will start shipping in the first half of 2022, and additional versions are scheduled to be released later.
