Research and Development Applications

Our instruments, consumables and services enable the faster and more efficient screening of single cells and their products across a number of applications including biopharmaceutical discovery, bioproduction, cell therapy, disease research, metagenomics and diagnostics.

We understand the needs of R&D and how these vary across different applications. That’s why our team of experts have developed technology to meet the demands of researchers working across a number of Life Science disciplines. Our miniaturised single cell analysis systems integrate cell screening, protein assays, single cell sorting and monoclonality verification into a single compact system. This enables you to increase throughput and lower cost, while still carrying out highly sensitive analyses.

The integration of all cell handling processes using our instruments is truly beneficial, providing significant operational and time savings, as well as reducing the risk of contamination in comparison to manual methods. The high-speed of our systems also leads to significant time savings – which makes all the difference when developing, testing and manufacturing new drugs, as well as when performing research in medical areas. With picodroplets at the core of all our systems, miniaturisation allows you to save on the cost of reagents and reduces the use of valuable samples.

Our products and services are designed to empower you and your team. They enable the rapid and efficient discovery of new biopharmaceuticals, development of cell therapies and help you find novel ways to improve pharmaceutical production. If you are looking for that rare ‘one in a billion’ molecule, variant or cell type, we’re here to support you.
