The AVISO CellCelector is a freely configurable tool for the automated transfer of single cells and cell colonies. The patented harvest process allows a gentle cell uptake directly from the culture plate without pre-treatment. Using this technology, highest survival rate and cell integrity are guaranteed.
The AVISO CellCelector combines precise robotic technology with a sophisticated image processing software. The integrated inverted microscope enables work under brightfield, phase contrast and fluorescence conditions.
The workflow of the AVISO CellCelector is divided into three steps:
The detection of the target cells is carried out by scanning the culture plate based on pre-defined grey values. The results of the scan can additionally be refined by specific selection and definition of morphological parameters, such as diameter.
The harvesting process of the AVISO CellCelector is done by mechanical suction of the target cell within the source plate and the subsequent release in a designated target vessel (culture plate, PCR plate, etc.). To ensure the integrity and the survival rate of the cells, various harvest modules are available.
As part of the cell harvesting, all relevant data are recorded to the software?s database.
Stored data can be exported into a separate folder for later analysis.
