Microchip-based cell sorting offers a number of advantages compared to conventional jet-in-air cell sorters. High sample throughput, purity, yield, and low cell stress can be achieved simultaneously. The MACSQuant Tyto Sorter is a benchtop instrument that uses a sterile disposable cartridge with a microfluidic chip to purify samples in a closed environment.
At the heart of the microchip is the world’s fastest valve that enables precise flow switching every 10 µs. Therefore, valve actuation rates of up to 30.000 events per second can be achieved. The droplet-free microfluidic approach minimizes cell stress during the sort process, resulting in high cell viabilities and preserved cell functionality.
In addition, the close cartridge system prevents aerosol formation, ensuring operator safety during the sort process. Simple workflows without complicated setups and alignment procedures allow for sorting with just a few mouse clicks.
