DispenCell

A simple single-cell dispenser for proof of monoclonality

The DispenCell™ Single-Cell Dispenser is an automated laboratory instrument designed for fast, easy and gentle single-cell isolation. DispenCell integrates seamlessly into your laboratory workflow, with a plug-and-play approach. Flexible and effortless, DispenCell operates equally under sterile conditions in a culture hood, or on a simple benchtop.

The DispenCell Single-Cell Dispenser utilizes advanced microfluidics technology to accurately control the dispensing of individual cells. The tool can effectively detect, size, and dispense particles down to the single-particle resolution based on impedance change that depends on particle volume. It can accommodate a wide range of cell sizes and types, allowing researchers to adjust parameters such as cell concentration and dispensing volume at a gentle pressure of less than 0.2 psi to achieve the desired cell density and distribution.
