CloneSelect Single-Cell Printer Series



Eyewitness proof of monoclonality


The CloneSelect? Single-Cell Printer? Series deposits single cells gently and with high efficiency using a patented, inkjet-like disposable, one-way dispensing cartridge. Sort cells using high-res imaging in either bright field or optional fluorescence and capture 5 images per each single cell deposit. Prove monoclonality, improve your efficiency, maintain and enrich your viability, and prevent cross-contamination.

  • Cell isolation proof captured

    Document a sequence of five images as the cell is dispensed, providing direct image evidence of monoclonality in 96- or 384-well plate formats.

  • Clonal outgrowth improved

    Achieve up to 8X improvement in clonal outgrowth efficiency over traditional methods. Deposit single cells with high efficiency into 96- or 384-well plates. It takes as little as ~5 min to dispense into a 96-well plate.

  • Cells stay healthy and clean

    Maintain cell viability with gentle sorting as seen with outgrowth assays, and prevent cross contamination with sterile, disposable one-way flow cartridge.


  • Image-based proof

    Five images are captured each time a single-cell is dispensed, providing direct, image-based evidence of monoclonality that can be used in regulatory fillings.

  • Fluorescence imaging and sorting

    Sort viable cells based on live-cell fluorescent dye, enrich cell populations for high producers with fluorescent reporter, or isolate desired fluorescent CRISPR clones.

  • Microfluidics technology

    A patented, silicon microfluidic chip within the sterile cartridge generates pico-liter droplets that encapsulate cells. Only high-value droplets are seeded into plates.

  • Label-free imaging and sorting

    Sort cells based on size and morphology from a heterogenous cell population and select to deposit from 1 up to 100 cells per well.

  • Dispensing a wide variety of cell types

    A wide range of cell types such as CHO, HEK293, L929, t-cells and b-cells can be dispensed. Cells can range in size from 5 and 40 um.

  • Sterile Cartridge

    Individually-wrapped, sterile cartridges were designed so that cell samples never contact the instrument. A single cartridge can be used to print several microplates.
