MACSQuant® Tyto® Cell Sorter

The revolution in cell sorting has begun

The MACSQuant® Tyto® is revolutionizing cell sorting. Our patented microchip-based technology opens new possibilities in basic research and medical applications. Start taking advantage of high-speed, multiparameter flow sorting in the safety of a fully enclosed cartridge.

Benefits

Full sterility

Samples are kept contamination-free within the disposable, fully closed MACSQuant Tyto Cartridge. No risk for carry-over or contamination of fluidics.

Fast and easy handling

No drop delay or laser alignment needed. Simply insert the cartridge, gate on cells, and sort.

Completely safe

The fully closed cartridge prevents aerosol and droplet formation, providing a safe environment for operator and sample.

Gentle to cells

Sort and even re.sort cells under low pressure without compromising cell viability or functionality. Cells are no longer exposed to high pressure, charge, or decompression.

Customer testimonial

“My group has been working with Miltenyi Biotec’s MACSQuant Tyto Cell Sorter for over four years. We use it for the GMP manufacturing of patients’ antigen-specific T cells for Immatics’ clinical trials, and have successfully manufactured more than 60 patient products to date, all with the help of the MACSQuant Tyto. The device is easy to use even in this rigorous environment, and I have been very impressed with its performance specifically utilizing the closed and sterile cartridge system to provide a safe environment for the sorted cells. The gentle, microchip-based sorting mechanism preserves high viabilities amongst patients’ precious cells before they are moved to culture vessels for expansion.”
