Technology capabilities

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
