WaferGen ICell8 Single-Cell System
WaferGen Biosystems launched the ICell8 single-cell system. The SmartChip-based platform can isolate thousands of cells and process specific cells for analysis, including next-generation sequencing.
The system incorporates CellSelect automated imaging and software and the ability to run multiple samples or experiments on a single chip, by partitioning the chip in as many as eight sections.
Single cells from solid tumors, brains cells, pulmonary airway cells, multiple cell lines, and nuclei, ranging from 5 to 100 µm in size, can be isolated and dispensed into a single chip without pre-selection or filtering.
