Cell Microsystems AIR System

Cell Microsystems has announced the commercial launch of its automated AIR System for imaging, sorting, and isolating of single cells and small colonies. The tool is based on the firm's CellRaft technology, which allows researchers to culture single cells in an array of thousands of microwells contained in the CytoSort Array consumable. After imaging each cell using the system's three-channel fluorescent and brightfield capabilities, researchers can choose cells for later isolation and downstream molecular analysis, the firm said.
