The MACSQuant® Tyto® Sorter provides a novel and very gentle approach to cell sorting, eliminating the concerns associated with conventional droplet sorting.
- Nozzle-free: Unlike on conventional droplet sorters, cells are sorted by a high-speed mechanical valve within the MACSQuant Tyto Cartridge.
- Low pressure: Cells are sorted in a constant liquid stream of very low pressure (3 psi), preventing shear forces.
- No droplets: In the closed cartridge, cells do not get decompressed or charged, and no potentially hazardous droplets form.
- Temperature control: The sorting chamber can be temperature controlled allowing constant cooling of the sample throughout the entire sorting procedure.
