Walkaway neonatal heart dissociation

  • Process 1 to 160 neonatal hearts per hour using optimized protocols
  • Rely on automated, standardized processing
  • Obtain cardiomyocytes, fibroblasts, endothelial cells, and cardiac progenitors
The gentleMACS™ Dissociator Family in combination with Neonatal Heart Dissociation Kit allows for gentle, reproducible, and rapid tissue preparation resulting in functional single-cell suspensions. The Neonatal Heart Dissociation Kit has been optimized for the isolation of all cardiac cell types from neonatal hearts. However, it can also be used for the efficient dissociation of adult cardiac tissue and the subsequent isolation of cardiac fibroblasts, endothelial cells, and cardiac progenitor cells.

See functional and enriched cardiomyocytes in this video. Cells were obtained by neonatal heart dissociation using the gentleMACS Dissociators and the Neonatal Heart Dissociation Kit. Subsequently neonatal cardiomyocytes were enriched by using the Neonatal Cardiomyocyte Isolation Kit.

Choose the instrument that matches your lab’s throughput. The gentleMACS Dissociator gives you two parallel slots, while the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator allows for the processing of up to 8 samples in parallel or in sequence. For even greater convenience, the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator with Heaters allows walkaway processing of neonatal hearts in 1 hour without any hands-on time.
One central component of the gentleMACS Dissociator technology is the gentleMACS Tube. Each element of the gentleMACS C Tube has been engineered to ensure efficient tissue dissociation and high yields of viable single cells. 

See for yourself how it works. Together with our easy-to-use Neonatal Heart Dissociation Kit, the combination of mechanical and enzymatic tissue dissociation results in functional cardiac single cells with preserved cell integrity.
