The Lightcast instrument is a state-of-the-art optical system which uses software-generated light patterns to manipulate thousands of microdroplets independently and in parallel. These droplets may contain different cell types, antibodies, cancer drugs, and / or any number assay reagents.
The droplet manipulations can be used for a broad range of complex assays
The platform can carry out complex multi-parameter cell sorting and selection operations, as well as merging, and splitting functions
Cell culture and passaging can be carried out, hands free and fully automated
The platform is equipped with multiple laser lines, as well as being enabled for brightfield and darkfield microscopy
Advanced AI can be used improve cell selection
The videos below show some of the platform’s basic capabilities:
