How to select targeted single cells by digital sorting
DEPArray™ technology is an automated instrument that can identify and recover single rare target cells with 100% purity. The image-based instrument uses a nine-channels fluorescent microscope to capture single-cell images and identify target cells with desired fluorescent signals and morphological characteristics. The DEPArray™ technology can analyse both live and fixed cells, and is able to handle rare cell suspensions of extremely low volume and small cell loads, such as fine needle aspirates. Isolation of pure, viable and intact single target cells from a heterogeneous sample allows researchers and clinicians to study the biological significance of rare cells at single cell resolution. The System includes the proprietary DEPArray™ cartridge and DEPArray™ analysis platform.
