Cytena x.sight Single-Cell Printers

Cytena has launched three new single-cell printers, called c.sight, f.sight, and b.sight, that are part of its x.sight line of instruments. The c.sight instrument is designed for cell line development and single-cell genomics and can be operated outside a sterile bench. The f.sight device has two cameras, which can be controlled independently, to capture bright field and fluorescence signals simultaneously. In addition, it has an adjustable laser. The b.sight system enables the isolation of cells in the sub-micron range and printing single-cell bacteria. It has high-resolution optics and requires no staining or labeling of the cells. Cytena has also updated the software for all its single-cell printers, allowing them to be integrated into robotic platforms.
