Accelerate your single-cell cloning work with the isoCell

Single-cell cloning at the microscale

The isoCell introduces a completely new approach to single-cell cloning by harnessing the power and benefits of microscale fluid-shaping. The isoCell provides high-level automation where it matters, enforces a highly convenient and consistent workflow, and requires almost no training.
It has an incredible small footprint and little weight, making it very portable with almost no space requirement — ideal for any laminar flow hood.
As a multi-user instrument the isoCell stores data and handles several experiments from multiple users simultaneously with ease.

isoCell — automate your single-cell cloning workflow

Create a GRID on 60-mm round-bottom dishes, comprising 256 individual chambers (equiv. to 2½ 96-well plates)

Automated dispensing of cells into GRID chambers (visualised here by dyed cell-culture medium)

Automated feeding of GRID chambers that contain single cells (specified by user via convenient GRID coordinates)


Automated retrieval of colonies for downstream workflows
