Label-free single-cell isolation of bacteria and other microorganisms
Dispense bacteria, yeast and archaea using single-cell technology
It is now possible to isolate individual prokaryotic cells using CYTENA’s validated single-cell dispensing technology. The B.SIGHT’s extremely high-resolution optics make even the smallest cells visible. No staining or labeling is required to isolate single bacterium.
Single bacteria dispensing using single-cell technology
Ideal for Anaerobic Conditions
The benchtop B.SIGHT can be operated in an anaerobic chamber thanks to its small footprint, low particle emission and low heat emission. These characteristics provide the ideal environment for isolating obligate anaerobes. You can also control the device from outside the cabinet by connecting a monitor, keyboard and mouse, or by using a remote control terminal.
Start sorting right away
Isolating cells is simple and contamination free with our disposable cartridges. Simply pipette your sample into the reservoir and mount the cartridge to the B.SIGHT. Microscopic droplets are produced through our bacteria dispensing cartridges to create stable and accurate bacteria encapsulation.
ISOLATE FLUORESCENT MICROORGANISMS
CYTENA offers customers the option to add one integrated laser for fluorescent cell sorting. Choose the laser that best suits your needs and start sorting right away.
Intuitive and easy to use software
Use the interactive well plate to design your own unique dispensing experiment and see in real time how each bacterium is sorted through the nozzle of the cartridge and dispensed into your 96- or 384-well plate. Images of the dispensed single bacterium are stored on the hard drive, providing proof of clonality.
