NanoCellect Biomedical Wolf G2 Cell Sorter

NanoCellect has launched the Wolf G2 Cell Sorter, the second generation of the company's Wolf Cell Sorter. Like the original platform, the Wolf G2 has a small footprint and features low-pressure microfluidics, making it gentle on cells compared to most traditional cell sorters. The sterile and disposable cartridges are well-suited for infectious disease research because they can help eliminate cross-contamination and reduce risk for lab technicians. The Wolf G2 has more lasers and fluorescent channels (up to two and nine, respectively) than its predecessor, and can be used for a broader set of scientific applications including immunology and immunophenotyping.
