S2 Genomics Singulator 100 System

S2 Genomics this week launched the Singulator 100 System at the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology meeting. The Singulator 100 automates the processing of solid tissue samples into suspensions of single cells or nuclei with high yields and from small samples for a wide range of single-cell biology and genomic analyses. The company said that this enables researchers to reproducibly prepare suspensions of high-quality, highly viable cells or nuclei with minimal variability. The system will begin shipping in spring of this year with kits available for single-cell and nuclei isolation.
